^^"Anticipating that every family of the name, or in immediate connection with it, may desire a copy of this 
most inimitable Marshalling of the Humphrey Arms, for framing, the author has had a limited number of copies 
enlarged, with an ornamental border, making the picture 15 x 2i inches. It will be accompanied with the certificate 
of authenticity, designed also to be framed, and suspended below the arms proper. They will be securely mailed to 
applicants for S3. 00 each, or two complete copies for $5.00. The author hopes in this manner, not only to serve his 
kmsmen, but also to obtain some return for the large outlay involved. Address, 

F. HUMPHREYS, 109 Fulton Street, N. Y.

In concluding this to me, and to those personally engaged in it, long, laborious and 
anxious work, it only remains to speak, by way of apology, of some of our embarrassments; to 
acknowledge our many obligations to sympathizers and helpers, and to express our congratulations 
at the results attained. 

Only those who have gone through a similar labor can well appreciate the difficulties attend- 
ing the getting together of such an immense array of details, and of presenting them in the orderly 
sequence of families and of individuals, with the numerous dates and initials of each of the thous- 
ands of persons mentioned, with fidelity and precision. Such a labor can only be accomplished by 
those who have a love and aptitude for the work, with fortunate surroundings of comfort and 
leisure, as well as zeal for its performance. Even armed with these, their devotion will be sorely 
tried during its long and toilsome progress. 

During the twenty years which have elapsed since its commencement, illness and the grave 
have not failed to claim their own, and often most sadly to interfere with plans and arrangements. 
Of those more directly engaged in the work may be mentioned Dr. Otis M. Humphreys, whose 
failure in health early caused his abandonment of it; Mrs. S. M. Churchill, deceased, to whose 
unremitting industry for three years I am so much indebted, and to Gen. A. A. Humphreys, who 
had only prepared to do so important a part when he was suddenly called hence; not to mention 
others. The building, indeed, has gone on, though the workmen have failed, but such failure has 
always entailed somewhat of disappointment, and doubtless of loss. 

That defects and even errors should creep -into such a work is inevitable. Those who 
construct can only work up, as best they may, the material furnished, and it can hardly be e.xpected 
that all the details of such a plan should come together and be arranged in perfect order and 
harmony. Yet, it is a matter of congratulation that so few blemishes or errors have appeared, and 
that on every hand its wonderful precision has been so generally praised. If, in any case, justice 
has not been fully done, or the meed of praise been up to the standard of expectation, the censure 
should be mild toward those, who, like the faithful painter, have always desired and endeavored to 
present their subjects in the most favorable light. 

My obligations are deep and sincere to the very many careful, painstaking men and women 
all over the country, who have from time to time, and even repeatedly, copied records, obtained 
and forwarded information and details innumerable, and thus made the work possible, yet whose 
names, owing to the loss of those since passed away, cannot now appear. But I may especially 
mention Mr. D. Williams Patterson, who early did considerable work for us in Connecticut; Mr. 
Gilbert Nash, who almost entirely furnished the Dorchester and Weymouth branch; Capt. James 
J. Humphrey, of Yarmoulhvillc, Me.; J. Otis IIumphrky, Esq , of SprinKficUl, 111.; Mr. Geokce 
WiLMOT Humphreys, of Delphi, N. Y. ; I'ruf. William Einley Humphkeys, ..f Full..n, Mo.; Charles 

E. KiNCAiD, Esq., of Washington, D. C. ; Hon. Noah H. Osborn, of McGrawville, N. Y. ; Moses 
Dyer, of Canton, Conn., and others, whose written contributions and encouragements have been 
ready and valuable. I mention especially Dr. H. R. Stiles, who, all along, has been not only friend, 
counsellor and guide; but, of late, chief workman and director as well. Of the financial aspect I 
need not here speak, only in general, to express my thanks to those who have shown their interest 
in the work by becoming its subscribers, and in some cases by having, beyond such subscriptions, 
contributed liberally toward sharing my disbursements. At the close of the work is given the list 
of subscribers and amounts received, as experience teaches that such lists, while even now interest- 
ing, in future years, become almost invaluable. 

It is cause of devout thanks to the All Father that in His kind Providence He has per- 
mitted me to see the close of this work, and I also congratulate all of the name and kin in 
having had placed within their reach so complete, minute, authentic and exhaustive a history of 
the origin and status of the family, and of its several distinctive branches. It is worthy of remark 
that the record of these several branches of the family is in no way connected on this side of the 
Atlantic, and perhaps even remotely in the old world, yet all exhibit the distinctive family traits of 
character. The same self-reliance, the artistic and poetic temperament, the faculty of language, the 
instinctive humor, the natural grace and ease of deportment, and in an eminent degree the faculty 
of construction, and the same sturdy independence of character which have all along characterized 
the race, are fully sustained in these allied branches. The positions in life towards which these 
gravitate, simply confirms the history as given in these pages of the family, who, having been free 
to choose their occupation or callings, have out of these developed those peculiarities or graces of 
character which have made them what they are. It is a record of which they may well be proud. 
In all those hundreds of pages and thousands of names I have seen nothing that needs to be 
concealed or which should cause one to blush; and, taken as a whole, it is a singularly honorable 
and blameless record. If few of the names have, of late years, obtained eminence in political life, it 
may, perhaps, be attributed to a preference for the less obtrusive duties of citizenship rather than 
to a want of talent, ability, or the confidence of the community. 

That the work will remain, in the long years to come, an inspiration and incentive, as well 
as in some sort a monitor and guide, I have a conviction, and in this may well have my reward.

2301- Abraham* Humphrey, [946J (Capt. Abraham,'^ IsaaC^ Ensign Samuel^' Lieut. 
Samuel.- Michael,^) was born 4 May, 1799, in Goshen, Ct. He married, in Victor, Ontario Co., 
N. v., 19 May, 1831, Amna* Palmyra (dau. of Jacob and Hannah Boughton) Lobdell, a native 
and resident of Victor, N. Y., b. 5 Aug., 1798. Her father was one of] the earliest pioneers of 
that region, being the first white man who spent a winter in Victor. Mrs. Humphrey died in 
South Norwalk, Ct, 12 Aug., 1872, se. 74 years. 

The following appeared in the Victor Weekly Herald, December 7th, 1882: — 
"Died quietly, after a short indisposition, at South Norwalk, Ct., on Friday morning, Dec. ist, 
1082, Abraham Humphrey, at the residence of his son-in-law, S. Chauncey Palmer. 

"Mr. Humphrey came to Victor, in the year 1821, when twenty-one years of age, and settled 
on Boughton Hill. Sixty-two years have wrought many changes in ,this locality, and the pioneers 
who at that time came into a comparatively new country, found then enough to do in the way 
of clearing their farms, planting orchards, and making homes, to learn well the meaning of the 
words privation and hardship. But while they labored and endured, they gained for themselves 
physical strength, vigorous and sinewy bodies, and characters as strong and stable as their con- 
stitutions. Mr. Humphrey was notably industrious, economical and prudent, and by the exercise 
of these virtues succeeded in gaining a competency. Another eminent quality was his strict 
integrity in all his business relations, and the common affairs of life. Being a man of strong 
religious convictions, he was a constant attendant upon divine worship, and always contributed 
liberally to the support of the church of his choice. After the death of his wife, in 1872, he was 
left mainly dependent upon their only surviving child, Mrs. Ellen M. Palmer, for that loving care 
which children alone can give, when the form is bent with years, and the infirmities of age weigh 
heavily. He spent most of his time with her, but he sadly missed the familiar faces and okl 
friends of former years, for he had grown too old to again form new ties, so he was brought 
back to the spot he loved so well, Boughton Hill, and laid to rest with his kindred and neighbors. 
"A brief service was held at Norwalk before leaving, and upon arriving at Victor, the re- 
mains were taken to the residence of Mr. Luman P. Miller [Fam. 143 (2278), S.=], where the 
funeral was attended on Sunday afternoon, December 3d. Thus ended a long life of eighty-three 
years, peaceful, happy and well-spent. 

'Of no distemper, of no blast he died, 

But fell like autumn fruit that mellowed long, 

Even wonder'd at because he dropped no sooner; 

Fate seemed to wind him up for fourscore years. 

Yet freshly ran he on three winters more, 

Till, like a clock worn out with eating time. 

The wheels of weary life at last stood still.'"

2307. Hon. Harvey'^ Humphrey, [962] (/ona/Acjn,^ Isaac,'^ Ensign Samuel,^ Lieut. 
Samuel, '^ Michael,^) was born 24 December, 1796, in Goshen, Ct. He married, in Rochester, 
N. Y., 2 October, 1828, Elizabeth Rogers Perkins, a native and resident of Norwich, Ct., b. 24 
Dec, 1808, dau. of Dyer and Charlotte Sophia (Woodbridge) Perkins. She is related to the 
Griswolds and Huntingtons, and is a niece of Harriet Augusta Woodbridge, wife of Augustine* 
Humphrey, [Fam. 146, S.=] She resided (1882) in Rochester, N. Y. 

When Harvey Humphrey was two years of age, his father, having bought a farm in East 
Bloomfield, Ontario Co., N. Y., then on the extreme Western borders of civilization, removed 
there with his family. Here, for some years, in his log-cabin, built with his own hands, he 
passed a life of hardship, with his strong right arm subduing the forest, letting in the sunlight 
where for centuries it had not shone, and making the wilderness to bud and blossom as the rose. 
The subject of this sketch used to recall with pleasure the perils and labors so well endured, the 
pride with which, at an early day, he competed with men in holding the plough and swinging 
the axe and scythe. He could bring to mind many hair-breadth escapes in encounters with wild 
beasts, and in perils by flood and field. He liked to tell also, of his scant winter schooling, and of 
the studies pursued by firelight, late into the night, and of the two or three books so thoroughly 
scanned and studied and mastered. Among these was the old Bible, read and re-read, uutil its 
wondrous lessons stamped vividly on his memory became the seed which in after years sprang up 
in the high morality, and the rugged honesty, which dignified his manhood. He bore bravely 
the yoke in his youth and found its blessing after many days in fearlessness of hardship and brave 
bearing of burdens, which seemed light in contrast with those of his early life. 

In 1816, he entered Hamilton College, and for four years held the first place in all his 
studies. His classmates were Bishop Ives, Rev. Albert Barnes, and Harvey Johnston, the famous 
western missionary, and ten others hardly less well-known. He graduated in 1820, pronouncing 
the Salutatory, and would have been Valedictorian but for the fact that he had neglected too 
much the art of speaking. After graduating he entered the law office of Nicholas B. Randall, of 
Manlius, and studied law for two years. He was then elected tutor in Hamilton College. He 
accepted the position and discharged its duties with honor until 1824, when he removed to 
Rochester, and soon commenced the practice of his profession. Not long after his admission to the 
bar, he was appointed Justice of the Peace, which position he continued to fill for many years; 
was one of the members of the first Common Council of the City of Rochester, for many terms 
Supervisor, and, from 1852 to 1856, first Judge of Monroe County. All these ofiices sought him 
on account of his peculiar fitness for them, as he had all his life Kmg a jieculiar horror of self- 
seeking and political wire-pulling. 

In the practice of his profession, he was a wise and peculiarly judicious counselor, a close 
and very lucid reasoner, and in all things thoroughly reliable and trustworthy. His services were 


in great demand as a referee and arbitrator, and few weeks passed without his decision of some 
difficult and important case. 

As a scholar he had few equals in the State. He acquired in college a love of classical 
literature, which continued while he lived. His later years were mellowed and lightened by 
pleasant and intimate converse with Demosthenes and Plato, with Horace and Virgil, and other 
master-minds of Greece and Rome. Their works he studied critically in their own language. 
They were his daily delight, recreation and solace, affording pleasant occupation to all his leisure 
hours, even to the last day of his life. The poetic temperament was in him most decided. In 
his earlier life, he was a most cherished and prominent contributor to the best literary publications 
of the day; and this work had such fascination for him, as to necessitate his entire declination of 
it, upon his entering upon the more arduous labors of his profession.* 

In 1851, his son, Oeorge Harvey, was admitted to practice, and the firm from this time 
continued to be H. & G. H. Humphrey until his death, which occurred in Rochester, N. Y., 
May 1st, 1877, at the age of 80 years. To the last he kept up his interest in current events and 
in the duties of his profession. Although his physical force abated, his mind remained clear and 
his memory perfect. His cheerfulness was never dimmed; every year he thought happier than the 
preceding. The day of life, with advancing years, grew more and more serene and unclouded un- 
til its growing light faded into the dawning of the other and sunnier shore, f

Solomon, Kansas, with the expectation of working it. After a day's trial he 
abandoned the attempt, as he found it was almost impossible for him to raise 
his foot after putting it down on the ground. He had bought what is called 
"gumbo" land; it had rained the day before his arrival, and such soil cannot be 
worked after a rain. 

After occupying several positions of trust in public institutions at Kalamazoo,

2486. Deacon Stephen O." Humphrey, [1109] f^""- ^'oah,-' .Voah,^ Ensign Samuel,' 
Lieut. Samuel,'' Michael,^) was born Z2 Sept., 1811, in Goshen, Ct. He married, 21 !Mch. , 1833, 
Phebe Sophia Robbins, a school-teacher, of Norfolk, Ct., b. 26 Aug., 1S13. She was a grand- 
daughter of Rev. Ammi R. Robbins, of Revolutionary memory, who was the pastor of the 
church in Norfolk, Ct., for sixty years. They removed, in 1837, from Goshen, Ct., to Hinckley, 
Medina Co., Ohio, near two of his brothers, Dea. Julius^ and Dea. Silas" Humphrey, who 
were then residents of Summit County, and there lived for six years. In 1843, they removed, 
with some of their neighbors, to a place near Rockford, Winnebago Co., 111., and thence, after a 
few years, to Beloit, Rock Co., Wisconsin. In this new countiy, surrounded by a thriving New 
England element, I\Ir. Humphrey found an ample field for usefulness, and in promoting the re- 
ligious and educational interests of the neighborhood he was ever earnest and laborious, often 
sacrificing his own time, strength and pecuniary means. His peculiarly pleasant deportment, and 
a certain winning manner of address, gave him great influence, even with those of less breadth 
of views and of more selfish dispositions. Yet he was always consistent, persistent and firm in 
the line of what he deemed to be duty. It is related of him that, while residing near Rockford, 
the lack of a school-house and educational facilities for the children of the numerous families 
setded on the prairies thereabout induced him to open a room in his own house as a school-room. 
He constructed the benches and writing-desks, and made due provision for all whom he thought 
would require to be accommodated; but he had under-estimated the need, and his room and 
house were soon filled with scholars in such numbers as to prove quite inconvenient to himself 
and family. His residence also became the meeting-house of the settlement, in which ministers 
of every denomination officiated, as opportunity offered. Dea. Humphrey's musical abilities added 
largely to the interest of these meetings, and he was generally looked up to as the leader on all 
such occasions, and in all social and public movements, the community showing, both by words 
and deeds, that he possessed their respect and confidence. During seasons of sickness, he was in 
universal requisition, since a natural gift fur nursing the sick, and a knowledge of the action of 


medicines upon the human system (a subject upon which he had been at considerable pains to 
inform himself by observation and study), peculiarly qualified him for such services. In this new 
countrw where physicians were scarce, he was frequently called away from his family and business 
to minister, for weeks at a time, by the beds of the sick and dying. 

In public matters he was also the recipient of repeated tokens of the confidence of his 
fellow-citizens: was frequently Justice of the Peace; Administrator of Estates; three times Treasurer 
of the town of Beloit; and three times Treasurer of the city, after its incorporation, resigning at 
length on account of declining health. Upon his removal to Beloit, he united with the Presby- 
terian church, and was chosen one of its elders, and subsequently, as the town increased, found 
it convenient and in the line of usefulness to join the Congregational church. The following 
notice written by his pastor, and which appeared in the local paper after his death, which occurred 
in 1S63. will best characterize this faithful, earnest man: 

"!Mr. Humphrey had his monument, self-erected in the hearts of those who shared his 
kind offices. For thirteen years, he was known by us only to be loved for his devotion to the happi- 
ness of those about him. In all the walks of life, his cheerful temper and hopeful spirit drew toward 
him those who needed sympathy in the hour of affliction, and in the chamber of sickness and 
death his Christian kindness and fidelity were especially manifest. At the age of sixteen, he 
publicly professed his faith in Christ, and united with the church in Goshen, Ct. It is the testi- 
mony of those who knew him best, that, from that time onward, his religion was the religion of 
principle, made practical in the details of every-day life. His funeral was attended by a large 
concourse of people, at the Second Congregational Church, of which he was a member." 

The widow of Dea. Humphrey continued to reside in Beloit, Wis. She survived her 
husband only a few }-ears.

2565- Otis Milton'' Humphrey, M. D., [1154J (Luman,^ Daniel.^ Ensign Samuel,^ 
Lieut. Saviuel," Michael,') was born 26 Apr., 1832, in Victor, Ontario Co., N. Y. His early life 
was passed upon the farm, and in attending, during the winters, the common public schools. 
At the age of eighteen, without means or much assistance, he resolved upon a classical collegiate 
education, and by labor during vacations and in term time, and by teaching, supported himself, 
and at East Bloomfield Academy, N. Y., and at Temple Hill Academy, Geneseo, N. Y., prepared 
and intended to enter an advanced class in Williams College, Massachusetts, when, in 1853, failure 
of health interrupteil the plan, .\fter a Kmg period of invalidism, follow-ed by employment for a 
few years as a commercial traveller, successively for Mr. A. W. Harrison and Messrs. H. P. & W. 

His widow removed to Oliio, ;iiul m.irried Edmond Motls. They res. (1S84) in the township of 





















C. Taylor of Philadelphia, carrying with him his text-book and reading medicine during leisure 
time, he afterward applied himself exclusively to the study of that profession under his uncle, 
Dr. Newman Dryer, of Penfield, N. Y., and afterward under Prof. Walter Burnham, M. D., of 
Lowell, Mass., and graduated M. D. at Philadelphia, in i860. After a year of practice at Natick, 
Mass., he attended a course of lectures and graduated from the Long Island College Hospital, 
Brooklyn, N. Y., in 1862, and on the 20th of August of that year was, by Gov. John A. Andrew, 
commissioned Assistant Surgeon of the 6th Reg. Mass. Vol. Infantry, then re-recruiting at Lowell, 
Mass. Here he married, 28 Aug., 1862, Sarah Frances Dennis, youngest daughter of Richard 
and Lucy Ann (Hooper) Dennis, of that city. She was born 8 Feb., 1840, in Lowell, Mass. 
Richard Dennis, now deceased, was son of Jonathan and Hannah (Sherman) Dennis, of Ports- 
mouth, R. I., members of the Society of Friends. Shortly after his marriage. Dr. Humphrey 
proceeded to Washington with the Regiment, which was thence ordered to Suffolk, Va., and there 
and thereabout remained on duty till the expiration of its term of enlistment in 1863. Here he 
was joined by his wife, who shared his camp life (as she also did his subsequent life in the service 
in Louisiana) till, by General Orders, after the approach and threatened attack of the Rebels, the 
presence of ladies was prohibited in the command. At the expiration of this term of service. 
Dr. Humphrey applied for appointment to the medical service of the United States, in the class 
of U. S. Volunteers, — passed his examination before the Examining Board at Washington, and 
was by President Lincoln commissioned Assistant Surgeon U. S. Vols., and ordered to report at 
New Orleans. He was there assigned to the Barracks of the U. S. General Hospital, where he 
remained till the summer of 1864, the latter portion of the time in charge. Late in 1864, at his 
request for field duty, he was successively assigned as Chi^f Medical Officer on the Staffs of Maj.- 
Gen. J. J. Reynolds, commanding at the mouth of White River, Ark., — of Maj.-Gen. F. Steele, 
commanding U. S. forces at Kenner, La. ,— and , later, of Maj.-Gen. Frank Herron, commanding 
at Baton Rouge, and after Lee's surrender, at Shreveport, La. He resigned at the close of the 
war, with the brevet rank of Lieutenant-Colonel, conferred "for faithful and meritorious services"; 
and settled in private practice at Boston, Mass., in October, 1865. Having been, long prior to 
the war, engaged on a collection of Humphrey genealogy, this work was now resumed, and 
Dr. Frederick Humphreys, of New York City, was soon heard of as interested in the same subject, 
and a conference between the two was had, leading to a fresh interest and impulse in the work. 
In 1870, through failing health, it was found necessary for the subject of this sketch to abstain 
from writing, and a change of residence was thought best. The then collected manuscripts of 
this work were accordingly turned over to Dr. Frederick Humphreys for completion and publi- 
cation, and Dr. 0. M. Humphrey removed with his family, in the autumn of 1870, to Minneapolis, 
Minn., where, with recovered health, he still resides (1884), and has since been usefully practicing 
his profession, and in some measure continuing to assist in this collection and compilation. He 
is a member of the various medical societies of his school of practice, and one of the founders 
and Directors of the Homeopathic Hospital of Minneapolis.

Sixth Reg. Infantry, U. S. A. ; was promoted to a 
captaincy in December, 1809; was wounded in the 
capture of York, Upper Canada, April 27th, 1813;

He was afterward appointed U. S. Agent to the 
Seminole Indians.f which position he held from May 20th, 1822 to March 31st, 1830. He 
established himself at Camp King, in the centre of the nation. In the treaty of Fort Moultrie, 
September iSth, 1823, the Indian chiefs and warriors requested, "as an evidence of their grati-

TTic Anierican Phrenological Journal gives the following: — 

"The faculty of language was as signally developed in the character of Col. Humphreys 
as the organ was large in his head. He was one of the very best story-tellers to be found, and 
was almost always talking. In consideration of the ease with which he learned to speak languages 
from hearing them spoken, he was made Government interpreter to the Seminole Indians, whose 
language he learned to speak in four weeks, difficult as it is. With very inferior facilities, he had 
learned to speak several languages, by casually hearing them spoken. So retentive was his mem- 
ory that -he required to hear any word or expression interpreted but once always to remember it. 
He could repeat a sermon verbatim just by hearing it delivered. He had all the elements of a 
truly splendid orator, and would have been one but that he loved his ease too well to make the 
required effort, "f 

From all I have been able to learn from my mother Anna (Landon) Humphreys, and from 
Hugh (the brother of Col. Gad) Humphreys and others, he was a most charming and accomplished 
gentleman, and noted as the finest story-teller and talker, and the finest humorist in the South. 
He was, like his father and ancestors, of large stature and commanding presence, full of inform- 
ation, — charming all who came in contact with him by his gentlemanly bearing and genial humor. 
We are indebted to R. H. Farnham, Esq., for these reminiscences concerning his uncle: — 
"Colonel Gad Humphreys was, beyond question, a man of great native talent, and his 
associates were always among the first of the land, wherever he went. Moreover, there was 
nothing of the snob about him. He was never in Attica but once, and that was probably about 
fifty-five years ago, when he came to visit my father's family. The people here were very much 
taken with him. One day he paid a visit to the late Major Parmenio Adams, whose acquaintance 
he had made at Washington while the latter represented the Genesee district, in Congress. A 
'raising bee' had assembled near by to help a neighbor up with a barn, when word came that 
they were short of help and could not get the frame up. 'Well, Adams,' said Col. Humphreys, 
'I reckon there is a job for you and me,' and the two betook themselves at once to the raising, 
and, throwing off their coats, each with pike in hand, helped on the 'job' until the last heavy 
limber was in place. " 

he following tribute of respect to the memory of Col. Gad Humphreys was printed soon 
after his death: — 

"At a regular communication of St. John's Lodge, No. 12, held on the 6th day of .September, 1859, the 
committee appointed at a previous meeting called on the occasion of the decease of our Worshipful Past Master, 
Gad Humphreys, consisting of Brothers James M. Gould, Ora Howard and William S. Harris, reported the follow- 
ing preamble and Resolutions, which were unanimously adopted: 

"It has pleased the Grand Architect of the Universe to break another link in our ancient and venerable 
Fraternity, and call to his reward and to receive his wages, our worthy, honored, and beloved Past Master, Brother 
Gad Humphreys, after a long and useful life of seventy-four yeai-s, devoted, both for his country and for our Order. 
Our lamented Brother was a native of Connecticut, and entered the United States Army about the year 1808 as a 
Lieutenant, and continued therein until the year 1821; and in all that period he had lx;en regularly advanced and 
])romoted until he had attained the rank of Colonel of his regiment. In this important interval,— in the 'Second 
War of Independence ' he served his country with credit to himself and the approbation of the Government. In the 
year 1821, the United States Army was reduced to the ' Peace eslablishmnit,' and he with many others was disbanded. 

"Shortly after his reduction, our deceased Brother was appointed by President Monroe, Agent for the Seminole 
Indians in Florida, which was in the year 1822. He held and faithfully performed the duties of his office, until 
about the year 1830, when he was removed, during which time he obtained the confidence of the Seminoles, and it 

d.ite as given on page 391. t Vol. XXXV., September, i86a. 


is believed that, had he been continued in office, his influence would have saved his country a very large part oi 
the many millions of money which it has cost the Government of the United States in that devastating Indian War. 

"In the general wreck, on the outbreak of Indian hostilities in 1S35, he, in common with others, lost his all, 
and only until recently has he been enabled to recover a bare portion of that which ought to have been promptly 
remunerated to him; but it is a happy thought that in his latter days comfort and competence surrounded him. 

"For the last ten years he has held the office of Judge of Probate for St. John's County, and for more than 
twenty years he has been our almost daily associate. 

"Such is a brief sketch of the life of our departed Brother, friend, and fellow-citizen; but something more is due. 

" He was a bright and shinmg light, and devoted Apostle of Masonry. For more than forty years he had 
been one of its members, and for more than seventeen years has he been the zealous and active Master of this Lodge, 
the present members of which have almost all been raised by his hand. 

"Our lamented Brother has held and filled the offices of Deputy Grand Master of the Grand Lodge, and also 
that of Grand High Priest of the Royal Arch Chapter of Florida. 

"We deplore liis loss to the Fraternity and can only say, 'the will of God is accomplished.' Therefore be it, 

'■^Resolved, That in the death of our beloved Brother, Gad Humphreys, our Fraternity has lost a bright and 
shining light, the community an upright citizen, and the fi-iend and benefactor of the widow and the orphan. 

" Resolved, That we tender our sympathies and condolence to the widow and family of our deceased Brother, 
and commend them to Him who only knows how to give relief and soothe their sorrow and distress in this their 
time of trouble. 

"Resolved, That a Blank page of the Records of this Lodge be inscribed with the name of our deceased 
Brother and thus endeavor to perpetuate his memory. 

"Resolved, That the members of this Lodge will wear the usual Badge of mouAiing for the space of thirty 
days, and that our Lodge Room be clothed in the habiliments of mourning for the term of six months. 

"Resolved, That this preamble and the Resolutions be spread upon the Record, and a copy of them sent to the 
family of our deceased Brother, and a copy furnished to the St. Augustine Examiner for publication, and that all 
the newspapers in the State be requested to copy the same. 

"A true copy from the minutes. Signed, 

John Lott Phillii's, 

Secretary. ' ' 



How Col. Gad Humphreys Compromised with the Chief of the Seminoles." 

"A notice of the death of Col. Gad Humphreys, late Worshipful Past Master of St. John's Lodge, No. 12, 
which appeared in a recent number of the St. Augustine Examiner, reminds us of a characteristic incident in that 
worthy gentleman's life, which was related to us many years ago, in his presence, by his friend Capt. Graham, at 
that time in command of the troops stationed at Fort King, in Florida. 

" During Major Fagan's Indian Agency, and while he was absent from the nation, we were present at the 
paying of the government annuity to the Seminole Nation, of which Micconopy (Pond King) was then the head 
chief. The entire nation— men, women and children— had assembled, and were encamped romid the fort, waiting to 
receive their money, presents, etc. The important event had also attracted to the cantonment many white persons, 
officials, ex-officials, and others, among whom was Col. Gad Humphreys, who came to pay a visit to the tribe 
among whom he had so long dwelt as the representative and agent of the government. — The chiefs greeted him 
with unusual cordiality, and seemed to esteem it an especial honor to be permitted to shake hands with the ex-agent 
and to drink his good health at the officers' mess table. One old chief, by the name of John Hicks, who had 
formerly been the head chief of the nation, but who, for some cause, like Col. Humphreys, had been removed, or 
broken, as they call it, was very extravagant in his demonstrations of friendship and respect for his fillen Col. 
Humphreys. There seemed to exist between them a peculiar relationship springing fiom some old reminiscence 
alike interesting to both, and to which frequent allusions were made on the part of Hicks, by certain pantomimic 
gesticulations and grimaces, which always ended in a hearty grunt and a ]>roposition to shake hands. 

"Much curiosity having been expressed by the white visitors to know the meaning of all these mysterious 
demonstrations, which seemed to be perfectly understood and heartily enjoyed by the Indian chiefs, Capt. Graham 
promised to give us an account of what he called 'Col. Humphreys' and John Hicks' compromise.' Accordingly 
one night after supper, when Hicks had gone through his pantomime, accompanied as usual with an amount of 
incoherent gibberish and awkward oaths, much grunting and vehement protestations of friendship for Col. Humphreys, 
and had taken his seat on the floor in the corner, where he vainly endeavored to keep the mosquitoes from biting 
his bare legs, occasionally brandishing his fists and shaking his head at the Colonel, om- host, the commandant, 
proceeded to give us the story. 


"Duriii'r tlie first years of Col. Humphreys' agency, the Seminoles had manifested mucli dissatisfaction with 
the treaty by which they had agreed to reUnquish the western portion of the territory to the whites, and to confine 
themselves within the boundaries of their reservation. It was understood that Hicks, the then head chief of the 
nation, had never heartily sanctioned the ti-eaty, and that he had exerted his influence with the nation ^against it. 
The presence, too, of the United States soldiers, sutler, agent, and other whites, at Fort King, within the reservation, 
was very distasteful to the old chief, who regarded it as an encroachment upon the rights of his people, who, by 
the terms of the treaty, were not allowed to go into the settlements or hunting-grounds of the whites without a 
written permit from the agent or commandant. 

"Hicks was too crafty and too prudent to publicly manifest his daily increasing hostility to the whites, but it 
was plainly to be seen that he was exerting his influence to make his people discontented antl to incite them to in- 
subordination. The bearing of the principal chiefs was daily becoming unfriendly and reserved, while the younger 
ones were sometimes insolent and not mifrequently threatened the whites with whom they came in contact. Various 
alarming rumors were in circulation of Indian preparations for hostilities, and considerable uneasiness was beginning 
to be felt among the frontier settlers, who feared that without an augmentation of the military force in the nation, 
the whites could not long remain safe from Indian depredations. 

" Hicks' visits to the Fort or to the agent's house, which stood some half a mile from the cantonment, became 
less frequent, and when he did come his conduct was haughty and his words often insolent, especially if he was a 
little in liquor. 

"Col. Humphreys, who was a brave and resolute man, watched the growing discontent of the Indians, and 
the increasing audacity of Hicks with some anxiety. He knew well the Indian character, and he determined to avail 
himself of the earliest opportunity and most effectual means of checking the rising spirit of revolt. 

"An opportunity soon presented itself.— One day Hicks, with a considerable party of Indians, came to the 
cantonment to trade. At the store they exhibited a very bad spirit, some of them refusing to pay for their purchases, 
and demanding liquor, which being denied them they became very abusive, swearing that the store-keeper should not 
stay in the nation. Leaving the store in a turbulent manner, they mounted their ponies and rode towards the agent's 
house which stood by itself about half a mile distant, surrounded by a few cultivated acres. The Indians, who had 
their rifles with them, halted at a short distance from the house, while their chief. Hicks, who was considerably under 
the influence of liquor, rode boldly up to the gate, dismounted and staggered up the steps to the high piazza of the 
house, calling in a loud voice- for 'Humphreys!' 

"Col. Humphreys, who happened to be entirely alone, promptly made his appearance, extended his hand as 
usual, and invited Hicks to take a seat on a bench. 

"Hicks, haughtily turning from the bench towards the Colonel's large arm-chair, which occupied its usual 
place, said: 

" 'No, Humphreys! Me big cap'n!— my country! — me big Ingin, heap,' and took his scat very majestically in 
the arm-chair. 

"Col. Humphreys saw plainly that his distinguished visitor, who seemed to have dressed himself for the 
occasion in all his gewgaws and feathers, meditated mischief. He was a powerful man, and fearless as he was 
powerful— qualities, however, in which the Colonel was fully his match, with this advantage, that he was cool and 
collected, while the chief was excited with passion and liquor. It would not do to permit the Indian thus to brave 
him ill his own house. He felt that he must resent and punish the insult at all hazards, and his resolution 
was soon taken. 

"'Hicks,' said he, 'get out of that chair,' looking the Indian sternly in the face. 

"'Humphreys,' said Hicks, striking his hand on the arm of the chair, witli an ill-suited oath, 'Mine!— my 
house, my land! my land, my house! AH mine!' 

"'Hicks, if you don't leave that chair and this house, I'll make you!' 

"'Me!' exclaimed Hicks, with a look of savage defiance; 'me big Ingin, heap! -strong, like a jackass! Me 

damn big son of a ' 

"But before he had finished the .sentence. Col. Humphreys grasped him by the neck and the more substantial 
portion of his drapery, and, with one powerful effort raising him from the chair, pitched him headlong over the 
banisters, a distance of ten feet, on to the hard ground, where he lay kicking and senseless in full view of his party. 
"The Indians came running in a body to the house, surprised into comparative silence by the feat they had 
just witnessed. Col. Humphreys stood in his door as they approached. Not a word passed between him and the 
Indians who gathered round their prostrate and insensible chief. After a few words of consultation they took him 
up and bore him to a branch some distance from the house, where they bathed him an<l applied mud and herb 
poultices to his l.niisi<. When "he was sufiiciently recovered they placed him on bis horse and conveyed him 
to his home. 

"For severaldays not an Indian was to be seen about the cantonment. It w.i-; tliougn. tnal they were medi- 
fating plans of revenge, and close watch was kept upon tlieir movements, while quiit priparation «as nuide at the 
fort to be in readiness for them in the event of an attack. 


"Thus matters remained until about two weeks after the affair with Col. Humphreys, when old Hicks, a graver 
if not a wiser man, was seen on his pony alone approaching the house of the agent. Dismounting at the gate, he 
entered the enclosure and walked quietly up on the piazza fiom which he had so recently taken his headlong flight. 
As Col. Humphreys issued from the door, Hicks, with a serious and subdued look, extended his hand in token of 
friendship. It was promptly grasped by Col. Humphreys, who was about to speak, when Hicks interrupted him. 

'* 'Col. Humphreys, how do! how do!' 

"After the usual response from the Colonel,"' Hicks continued, without changing the demure and serious ex- 
pression of his face: 

" 'Col. Humphreys, me big Ingin heap — got sense plenty — get drunk, damn fool too much. Your house, my 
land — your land, my house!' 

" The Colonel, laughing, gave the old chief a hearty shake of the hand and invited him to take a seat in his 
arm-chair, which honor he promptly declined, preferring a less elevated seat, on a cowhide-bottomed chair which 
stood near. 

"A long conversation ensued over a friendly glass and pipes, during which Hicks e.\pressed his deep con- 
trition for his uncivil conduct, for which he confessed that he had been justly punished, and took much pains to 
convince the Colonel of his perfect understanding of the nature of their joint occujiancy of the Reservation. As he 
shook hands at parting he repeated, with marked emphasis —'Col. Humphreys — your house, my land— your land — , 
my house ! ' 

" Hicks lived to be a very old man, his health being very feeble during his latter years. To the day of his 
death he retained his friendship for Col. Gad Humphreys, a feeling which was warmly reciprocated by the Colonel, 
and which found expression in many acts of kindness to the old chief of the Seminoles."*

2596- May*^' Humphreys, ["Si] (//i»!. Raiben,^ Esq. OUva-,* Jimalhau.'' I.icul. Samuel^'

1S29, Mary Anne (dau. of George Washington and Mary Kennedy Philbrook) Hoppin, of Provi- 
dence, R. I., born there, in 1803; died in 1873, sc. 70 years. Mr. Humphreys died in New York 
City, 7 Dec, 1866, sc. 74 years. The following appeared in the New York Evening Post, 
December 8th, 1866:— 

"There died yesterday, at his residence in this city, Mr. May Humphreys, whose career 
as a merchant and man of business deserves more than this passing notice. Mr. Humphrej's was 
born in New England, and his father was an officer in the Revolutionary army. At an early 
period of life he entered into business at Baltimore, and was present, as a volunteer, at the battje 
of Bladensburgh in 1814. He subsequently settled in Philadelphia, where he carried on a large 
business, in the course of which he had frequent occasion to visit the West India Islands, and 
particularly in Jamaica; was well known and esteemed by the resident planters and merchants of 
those by-gone days, one of whom, Michael Scott, the author of that well-known book 'Tom 
Cringle's Log,' first published as a serial in BAichvooif, was his intimate frientl. 

"Subsequently, I\tr. Humjihreys married and resided in Philadelphia, becoming one of the 
directors of the L^nited States Bank in its palmy days, and, being most esteemed by its 
president, the well-known Nicholas Biddle, was entrusted by him with the management of the 
large cotton operations of the United States Bank in 1838-39, and, going over to Liverpool, in 
the end of 1837, established the house of Humphreys & Biddle, the junior partner of which was 
a S(m of the then famous financier. 

"At one time in 1838, ^Ir. Humphreys held the enormous stock of two huntlred and fift)- 
thousand bales of cotton for the United States Bank; and in October, 1S3S, having sold one tlay 
si.\ thousand bales to certain speculators, with the agreement that he would sell no more for a 
week or ten days, thS market instantaneously rose so much that the increased value of his stock 
required additional fire insurance in spite of the reduction of the six thousand bales. 

"When Mr. Humphreys arrived in Liverpool, he was regarded with some and 
dislike as an interloper who was taking away the business of the old established iiouses; but he 
had been but a few months there, before he had entirely overcome this feeling by his tact and 
urbanity, and he managed the immense interests committed to his care so ailmirably and with 
such punctilious honor and liberality, that he won golden opinions even from his competitors 
in business. 

"After closing up the cotton operations of the United Slates Bank. Mr. Humphreys re- 

• Remained eleven ycirs. .is .i merchant, in Liverpool, England, ace. lo the irisli>rr ■>/ ^t,\rc^UHI. A'. )'. 


"For one who had occupied so prominent a position in mercantile and social life, Mr. 
Humphreys was singularly modest and retiring, and it was only with old familiar friends that he 
would occasionally revert to some of the enormous mercantile transactions in which he had been 
engaged; — and so far as those in cotton were concerned, it is morally impossible that any one man 
can sell again, or have the control of such a mass of that material. 

"IMr. Humphreys has died in a good old age, respected and loved by all who knew him."

He married, 11 Nov., 1828, Ann Lawler Bevan, b. 26 Aug., 1807, in Philadelphia, Pa.; died 
suddenly, at Chickies, Pa., 18 July, 1879, te. 72 years. She was a daughter of Matthew Lawler 
and Deborah (Newman) Bevan, of Philadelphia. Mr. M. L. Bevan was a merchant and well 
known in connection %vith the shipping interests of that city, and as a Director of the United 
States Bank, and a prominent member of the Central Presbyterian Church. 

Sterne* Humphreys entered the Naval Academy at Middletown, Ct. , when quite a lad, and 
was thence transferred to active service in the United States Navy, serving his country with dis- 
tinction. He was commissioned Midshipman U. S. N., January ist, 1818, and stationed on the 
Frigate Macedonian; in 1823, was serving on the ship Cyane; was appointed, from the State of 
New York, Lieutenant U. S. N., commission dated March 3d, 1827, and stationed in the Pacific 
Squadron; continued in the navy until about 1832, and resigned with the rank of First Lieutenant. 

He then engaged in the shipping and, subsequently, in the iron business, as a member of 
the firm of Bevan & Humphreys, his father-in-law being his partner; — continued to fill this position 
until his death. In 1838, acting as agents of the United States Bank, they bought the entire 
cotton crop of the South in the interest of the bank, and consigned it to the Liverpool firm of 
Humphreys & Biddle, agents of the bank in selling the cotton.f [See Family 185, S.'] 

Lieut. Sterne Humphreys died in Philadelphia, 18 Feb., 1856. His frank, easy, generous 
manners, and his genial disposition and great goodness of heart, secured him a large circle of 
friends and acquaintances.

2^37- EraStUS- Humphreys, J^I- D., [1204J (Capt. Asher,'' Esq. Olwa-.* Jonaihan,' 
Lii'ut. Samuvl,' Michael,' ) was burn 17 May, 1785, in West Simsbiiry (now Canlnn), Ct. He 
married, in August, 1805, Anna (ciau. of (iiles* and Abigail Loumis) Landon, ui' (.'anion, C't., 
b. 16 Oct., 1785. in Litchfield, Ct. ; died in Rome, Oneida Co., N. V'., ly May, 1866, a-. 80 
years, and 7 months. 

Dr. Humphreys' early youth was passed much after the fashion of the most favored of those 
days, in working on the farm during the busy season and attending school during the winters. 
He enjoyed, also, the training and benefit of the library of his uncle Rev. (popularly called 
"Priest") Hallock; and, at the age of eighteen, was teaching school during the w^inters and pur- 
suing his more advanced studies during the summer, ending in his medical studentship with 
Dr. Solomon Everest, one of the most distinguished practitioners of his day, and from whose 
l)upilage several of the ablest physicians of Connecticut were graduated, and received his diploma 
from the State Medical Society of Connecticut, at Hartford, in 1808. He rode with Dr. Everest 
two years thereafter, and removed to Marcellus, Onondaga County, X. V., in 1810, where he at 
once assumed a prominent position in that county. 

At Marcellus, besides a large practice for some years (prior to 1820) in connection with 
Dr. Bildad Beach, and subsequently alone, he was e.xtensively engaged in business, owning and 
carrying on an oil mill, a flour or grist mill, a drug store, and during the war of 1812 a powder 
mill, besides being at times Justice of the Peace. While there, he was also Clerk of the Board 
of Trustees in the Presbyterian Society, under date of 18 13; and, possessing decided musical abilities, 
served as choir-leader for many years. 

From thence, in 1823, he removed to Auburn, Cayuga County, N. Y. At Auburn he was, 
for over twenty years, in the enjoyment of a large practice, and was regarded as among the most 
influential and skillful medical men of the day. He was several . years President of the Cayuga 
County Medical Society, and was for some years Surgeon of the Auburn State Prison. In 1840, 
he became a convert to the Homeopathic system of medicine, and from that time to his death 
was an unwavering and consistent follower of that method of practice. He very soon introduced 
the practice into the hospital of the Auburn State Prison, of which he was then the surgeon, and 
his report to the State Prison Inspector the following year served to direct public attention still 
farther to the new system. In that report, which is believed to have been the first introduction 
of Homeopathy in any public institution in this country, he showed that the average number of 
deaths in the hospital of some 700 to 750 convicts, from year to year, had been from twelve to 
fifteen. That, for a year, under Homeopathic treatment, the deaths had been but five, and that 
for the last seven months there had been no death, — thus establishing the fact that Homeopathy 
was not only useful among children and nervous women, but ainong convicts and stalwart men, 
as well. While a resident of Auburn, he was much interested in educational matters, ami was, 
for many years, President of the Board of Trustees of the Auburn Academy, School Commissioner, 
Trustee, etc. 

After a brief sojourn at Syracuse he removed to Utica, in 1843, where he was Joined by 
his son. Dr. F. Humphreys, the year following. In 1847, he removed to New York City, where 
he engaged sedulously in the effort of founding a Homeopathic Hospital, and which only suc- 
ceeded thirty years after, and in the course of which he was prostrated by a sunstroke. From this 
shock he never recovered, but lingered in precarious health until the 9th of March following, 
1848, when he died at Utica, NewrYork, in the 63d year of his age. 

• Giles Landon is thought to have been descended from Nathan Landon, who was born about 1664, and cmigmtcd to this country: 
— residing in Soulhold, L. I., in 1688. Some of his descendants settled in Litchfield, Ct. Giles and Abiguil (Loomis) Landon had 
four children besides Anna;— Abigail, John, and others. Abigail Loomis was bom, probably, 27 Nov. 1758, and daughter of Joel Loomis, 
of Windsor, Ct. She died in 1704. 


His influence in introducing and building up Homeopath}- in Central and Western New York 
was wide-Spread and potent. He supplied the deficiency of many of the practitioners of the school 
in that day, — a comprehensive knowledge of the literature and practice of both schools, an experi- 
ence of nearly forty years, a brilliant professional record, and a commanding personal appearance, 
and forensic talents of a high order, and these were fully consecrated to the promotion of the 
cause which had commanded his convictions, his judgment, and his heart. 

He was a man of resources, possessing great versatility of talent, never annoyed or muddled, 
however many things or subjects he had on hand. He was always a great reader, the first in 
everything, acquainted with all subjects, and an authority in all that was new, recondite, or out 
of the every-day lines of thought. As early as 1830, he called attention to the then new disease. 
Cholera, in an address to the Cayuga County ^Medical Societv, which was published and widely 
circulated, in which he traced its march and predicted its appearance in Western Europe and in 
this country. 

A man of fine personal appearance, six feet two in height, and weighing over two hundred 
pounds, of engaging manners, and polished address, a fine conversationalist and ready speaker, 
he was one whose presence and address would naturally command attention in any assembly. 
He was scrupulously neat, almost fastidious, in dress and equipage; and as faultless in expression 
and language. 

He was too versatile and visionary to succeed in making large accumulations, though he 
always maintained his reputable position and honestly paid his debts. In his later years his 
younger son. Dr. Frederick Humphreys, was in practice with him and had often occasion to 
admire his great fertility of resources, coolness and wisdom in emergencies.

active business men of that city until a year or two previous to his death, when de- 
clining health induced him to seek retirement. When country stores were fashionable 
there, he had a flourishing business. In later years, he was successfully engaged 
in the grocery and provision trade, with the exception of two years in the hard- 
ware business. He was agent for several prominent insurance companies for some 
twenty years. Mr. Hayden was a life-long Democrat. He was not an office- 
seeker, but the party placed him in several positions of public trust, which he 
filled acceptably. Children (born at Rome, N. F.J:

Alexis Proal, D. D., in Trinity Church, Utica, N. Y., Tuesday evening, 21 Aug., 
1849. to Hon. Henry David (youngest son of Hon. Eleutheros and Martha) 
Cooke, of Sandusky, O., where he was born 23 Nov., 1825. 

The limits of these sketches cannot do justice to his varied and distinguished 
career, nor to his eminent capacity and character. The country will recognize 
the man and its obligations to his genius in the brother of Jay Cooke, of Phila- 
delphia, and an enthusiastic and patriotic member of the firm of Jay Cooke & Co. 
in their advocacy and support of the finances of our government during our late 
war of the Rebellion. He graduated with the first honors, at Transylvania L^ni- 
versity, Kentucky, in 1844; pursued the study of law in Philadelphia till 1846-7. 
when, his health becoming impaired by application, he accepted positions as 
attache to the U. S. Consulate at Valparaiso, Chili, and correspondent to several 
leading public journals. On the voyage, the vessel was disabled and driven into 


St. Thomas, where he remained a month, and from a suggestion of Hon. David 
Naar, our commercial agent there, he conceived and developed, and presented in 
his journalistic correspondence, and in Official Reports of the Consular Office to 
Government, the plan of the Chagres route to the Pacific Coast, in pursuance of 
which Mr. Polk, in his ne.xt presidential message, made favorable mention of the 
same; and in about two years the Aspinwall Pacific Mail Steamship Company 
was in operation. 

Mr. H. D. Cooke subsequently engaged successfully in the California trade, 
and, in the schooner Kamahamaha, took out the first register ever issued to an 
American vessel on the Pacific Coast. Afterward, having lost his large property 
by the great fires of San Francisco, he again cheerfully began at the foundation, 
accepting the financial and editorial management of Hon. Morton McMichael's 
newspaper, the North American and United States Gazette, and later, of the 
Sandusky Register, and then the editorial and entire control of the Ohio Slate 
Journal, a leading Republican organ of the West. During his journalistic relations, 
he was deeply interested in railroad enterprises, and in the success of his political 
party, of which he was Presidential Elector for General Fremont. After this 
he was binder for Congress at Washington. In 1861, he accepted a position in 
the banking house of Jay Cooke & Co., assuming the control of the Washington 
Branch, and as President of the first National Bank at Washington, from which 
time, at home and abroad, in energ)-, in patriotism, and in devotion to the 
noble and benevolent enterprises of humanity and Christianity, within his sphere, 
he made his influence felt by society, and the nation; and his character and 
career may be presented for emulation as the pattern of a Christian gentleman. 
He occupied various municipal and official positions with great credit and' popu- 
larity, and his appointment to the chair of Governor of the District of Columbia, 
by General Grant, was at once a tribute to his deserved popularity and his eminent 
and varied abilities. He was the pioneer and leader in the grand development 
of Washington City during the period when it emerged from an unpaved, muddy, 
hilly and unkempt town of magnificent pretensions, to the most beautiful city of 
the Western world. His fine taste and far-reaching views, his social and, subse- 
quently, his official position as the Governor of the District, enabled him to accept 
the suggestions and direct the energies of others to the best advantage, while his 
unsullied integrity and devoted patriotism claimed the admiration of all. The 
debt which the city owes to his untiring efforts in its behalf, in planning its im- 
provements, combating the prejudices of the croakers, struggling with its finances, 
laboring with Senators and Representatives in its behalf, and in numberless ways 
by pen, purse and person, can never be appreciated or repaid. He died in 
Georgetown, D. C, Thursday morning, February 24th, 18S1, at the age of 55 years. 
Mrs. Cooke shared the honors and successes of her husband, and filled her 
position of influence with the native gentleness and grace of her character, illus- 
trating in her exalted domestic and social aims, and in her munificent benefactions, 
the impotence of wealth to stultify or pervert true worth. She res. (18S4)

ilies. Mr. Magruder went in early life to New Mexico, where he became interested in 
copper and silver mining. Since that time he has there, and in Colorado and old 
Mexico, been engaged in buying and selling mines. His life has been a very eventful 
one. He was once captured by the Indians, and only two years since w-as one of two, 
out of a party of eight, who escaped an Indian massacre. Res. (1884) in New Mexico.

FAMILY 194. 

2729. Rev. Heman^ Humphrey, D. D., [1217] (Solomon,^ Sokmon,* Jonathan,^' Lkut. 
Samuel,^ Michael,^) was born 26 March, 1779, in West Simsbury (now Canton), Ct. His father, 
Solomon Humphrey, was a farmer, and is described as "a man of good common school education, 
of more than ordinary taste for reading, of good common sense and unblemished reputation; 
— temperate, industrious and frugal." He was married twice, and Heman was the oldest child of 
his second wife, Hannah Brown, the daughter of Captain John Brown, of West Simsbury, Ct., 
who died in the service of his country during the war of the Revolution. He was the grandfather 
of the renowned John Brown, of Osawatomie.-f 

Heman Humphrey's mother is represented as a woman of uncommon mental capacity, who 
did what she could for the education of her children, in those days when the books upon the 
shelf at home would hardly number a half-dozen besides the Bible, Assembly's Catechism, and 
Dihvorth's Spelling-Book; and those furnished by the district schools added but very few to the list. 
When Heman was about si.x years old his father removed to Burlington, Ct., where three 
years later the lad attended his first school, which was taught by a farmer in the neighborhood. 
At this time we also often find him bending with eager interest, by the light of pine torches or 
of the kitchen fire, over such books as Robinson Crusoe or the Pilgrim's Progress, furnished him 
from the small library collected by the pastor of the parish; or we see him watching impatiently 
for the post-rider who brought the weekly Hart/ord Courant. This was a very small sheet in those 
days, but the only newspaper that found its way into that retired region, apd no word it con- 
tained escaped the eye of the boy, hungry for wider knowledge than his restricted life aflxirded. 
From this time, during several years, his summers were occupied either on his father's farm 
or that of a neighbor, while in the winter he attended the district school. One of these summers 
was spent upon the farm and in the family of Gov. Treadweil, of Farmington, Ct. , and in allusion 
to this time he says, "I can never be sufficiently thankful for the kind Providence which gave me 
a home in this inestimable family." It was his habit during these seasons of labor to improve in 
study all the time that was his own, while the cattle were "baiting at the noon-spell." He used 
the cart for a shade and the "hind-board" for a desk. At the age of si.\teen he made his first 
attempt at school-teaching, and for several years spent the intervals between the summers of farm 
life in this occupation. 

In considering those early surroundings, which were most powerful in their effect upon his 
character and future course, we should not fail to recognize the decidedly religious character of 
his home. It is thus described: "The influence and savor of Christianity were always in the 
household where Mr. Humphrey was nurtured. His father and mother had both been trained in 
the atmosphere of Puritanism. Daily the father ministered at the family altar. All the outward 
observances of Christianity were rigidly enforced. The sunset of Saturday was the hither bound 
of 'holy time.' Then work ceased, and all were enjoined to lay aside worldly cares, and compose 
themselves for the worship of the following day. All were required to attend public worship with 
the strictest regularity, and the catechising of the afternoon made a Sunday School of the family." 

* 1830, ace. to Judge H. H. Barbour, [Fam. 67 (1229), S.] He died in Western Missouri, ace. to one record, 
t See Family iS U=4). S. 


But, though the bo}' Heman was, by nature and training, reverent and conscientious in his 
attention to these external observances, it was not until the winter of his twentieth year, during a 
powerful revival under the preaching of Rev. Dr. Griffin, then settled in New Hartford, that his 
religious impressions deepened into the personal experience which he recognized as his conversion. 
It was such an experience as was the natural result of the yielding of his strong and earnest 
nature to the power of pungent and searching doctrinal truths, such as were presented in that 
day both from the pulpit and in personal appeals. In allusion to this period of his life he says : 
"If I was then born again, I was born a Calvinist; 'Not of flesh and blood, nor of the will of 
man, but of God, who hath mercy on whom he will have mercy.' I then fully embraced the 
doctrines of the Shorter Catechism, from which I never swerved." Yet though " the strong decrees " 
ever remained to him a bulwark and defense, it is equally true that faith in God's dear Son as 
the Saviour of the world was the vital element which inspired his faith, his preaching ,and his life. 

When he was twenty years old, encouraged by his pastor. Rev. Jonathan Miller, who also 
volunteered to give him some instruction, he determined to advance in his studies beyond the 
point he had previously thought of His biographer thus describes this attempt: "Two months 
in the harvest-field, then to study. Then teaching in the winter. Then once more to Latin; 
again to the harvest-field; and so the process went on in spite of enfeebled health, until, in the 
autumn of 1803, he passed successfully the examination which admitted him to the Junior class 
in Yale College." His earnest desire at this time was to prepare himself to become a minister of 
the Gospel. During the most of his college course he was obliged to replenish his purse by 
teaching, by assuming the duties of Librarian, and by other expedients, but his rank as a student 
was always good. He was diligent, also, with his pen, writing, among other things, articles for 
the New Haven papers over the signature of "Lictor," thrusting his manuscript under the Editor's 
door and hastily retreating. These articles attracted much attention from their ability, and much 
curiosity as to their authorship. In 1805, he was graduated with honor in a class of forty-two. 
Among his classmates were the distinguished Dr. Spring, long the almost unrivalled preacher and 
pastor of New York City, and Thomas H. Gallaudet, who introduced teaching the deaf and dumb 
into the country, and whose biography Dr. Humphrey wrote in after years. 

As there was no Theological Seminary in the country at that time, Mr. Humphrey, accord- 
ing to the custom of the day, studied for the ministry, with four or five other students, in one of 
the small "Schools of the Prophets," conducted by the Rev. Asahel Hooker, of Goshen, Ct. 
Theolog}' seems to have been almost literally the meat and the drink of the young divines, for in refer- 
ring to this time he says: "Some theological question was proposed for discussion at almost every 
meal. " Of the course pursued he says: "In these private schools there was no critical study of 
the original languages of the Scriptures. The period of study, which rarely extended over eighteen 
months, was almost wholly occupied in reading standard English theological authors, such as 
Hopkins, Bellamy, and, above all. President Edwards; also in writing disputations upon a long 
list of questions embracing the whole system of Christian doctrine, drawn from the Word of God, 
and embodied in the Westmimtter Assemhlys Catechism." 

If the truth thus sown though sound and vital was somewhat compact, it must in his case 
have fallen into productive soil, for we have, among many evidences of his theological ability as 
afterwards developed, this testimony from a distinguished New England clergyman: "When in- 
stalled (in 1826) over the church at Amherst College, Dr. Humphrey gave the Council his system 
of theology, w-hich for clearness, for conciseness, comprehensiveness and beauty, they declared 
they had never heard equalled." 

In October, 1806, he was licensed to preach by the Litchfield North Association. He thus 
describes his entrance upon the active iluties of the ministry: "With my license in my pocket, I 
purchased a horse, saddle, bridle and portmanteau, and was ready to enter the field, without 
knowing or conjecturing in what ci>rner of it I was to find emphnmenl. I was 'even with the 


world'; had paid all my bills, and had a few — very few — dollars left for contingent expenses." 
He had defrayed all the cost of his education without aid, excepting that some of his clothing 
had been furnished by his mother. He preached his first sermon at Cornwall, Ct., and before a 
meeting of ministers. A week or two later, he was requested to preach, as a candidate, in the 
Congregational church at Fairfield, Ct. ; and he was shortly after unanimously invited to become 
the pastor of that church and societ)-. When Mr. Humphrey found that the measure knoun as 
"The Half-Way Covenant "--which he regarded as most pernicious because "it gave church mem- 
bership to those who made no pretensions to personal holiness"— had gained a strong footing in 
the Fairfield church, he frankly told the leading members of the parish that he could not accept 
the position as their pastor on such a basis. It was a strong proof of their confidence in the 
young minister and of the earnestness of their desire to secure his services, that they authorized 
him to prepare a Confession of Faith, embracing all the leading orthodox doctrines, doing away 
entirely with the Half-Way Covenant; and that this ecclesiastical basis was adopted unanimously 
in a meeting of the church previous to his ordination, which took place March i6th, 1807. 

The burning of the town of Fairfield during the Revolutionary war (commemorated else- 
where in this work in the poem by General David Humphreys,*) had swept away the old church 
and parsonage. Owing to the poverty of the people they were obliged, in rebuilding these, as 
well as their own houses, to adopt the plainest style consistent with comfort. At the time of 
Mr. Humphrey's settlement among them, enterprise and progress were at a low ebb, and the 
parish was small. Throughout the ten years of his ministry his zeal and labors for the temporal 
and spiritual welfare of the people were untiring. About a year after his settlement Roger Minot 
Sherman came to live in Fairfield, and was ever after a warm friend and an important helper to 
him in his work. 

On the 20th of April, 1808, Mr. Humphrey was married, in Farmington, Ct., by Rev. 
Noah Porter, the brother of the bride, to Sophia Porter, only daughter and youngest child of 
Deacon Noah and Rachel (Merrill) Porter, of Farmington. The family to which she belonged has 
had its abode through successive generations, since 1652, in Farmington Valley. There were three 
sons in the immediate family of Sophia Porter. The oldest was Robert, who was a missionary, 
teacher and preacher in Central New York, as early as 1801, when that part of the State was 
mostly a wilderness. He was also principal of the Oneida Academy at Clinton, N. Y., out of 
which Hamilton College grew. The second son was Edward, who was a teacher and preacher in 
Connecticut; and the third son was Noah, who was the honored and influential pastor of the 
Farmington church for more than sixty years. It was at his house that the first meeting of the 
American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions was held, September loth, 1810. There 
were five members of the committee for organization, previously appointed at Bradford, present : 
Governor Treadwell (the chairman), Samuel Spring, Jonathan Lyman, Samuel Worcester, and 
Calvin Chapin. ISIr. Porter received the committee at his house, by special request of Governor 
Treadwell, and was present at their deliberations. In alluding to it he saj'S that the Board had 
hardly gone from his house when his aged father, who was living with him at the time, pledged 
himself to give five hundred dollars to the new enterprise, though this was probably a fourth or 
fifth of all that he possessed. One of Noah Porter's sons, Noah, is well known as a distinguished 
metaphysician, and as President, fur many years, of Yale College, while others of the family fill 
honored and responsible positions. 

Sophia Porter, who became the wife of Heman Humphrey, was born in Farmington, Ct. , 
December 27th, 1785. She is described as attractive in person, with a gentle dignity and grace 
of manner, and as expressing in her countenance the loveliness and nobility of character which 
distinguished her. She was a woman of transparent sincerity, of warm and tender affections, and 


a generosity of nature which manifested itself not only in ceaseless devotion to her family, but 
overflowed for the good of all with whom she came in contact. She had an unusual capacity 
for distinguishing between the false and the true, between the substantial and the superficial. 
Her mind w^as vigorous and well-balanced, and she was educated in the best schools of her day. 
In the varied duties which devolved upon her, as the mother of ten children, and as a parish min- 
ister's w-ife, in the impulse she gave to the best social, benevolent and religious enterprises, in the 
free and almost unbounded hospitality she exercised, as the head of the President's household, as 
the friend of poor divinity students, whose raiment she often repaired with her own fingers while 
she encouraged them in their efforts to secure an education, in every act of her life she manifested 
her desire to honor God, and to be of use to all whom she could reach. No wife was ever loved 
more truly; no children ever more revered a mother, before whom it was a delight to rise up 
and call her blessed. 

During the period of Mr. Humphrey's ministry in Fairfield special attention was awakened 
in New England to the danger arising from the tide of intemperance which was sweeping over 
the land. It was at this time that he assisted in the organization of what was called the "Con- 
necticut Moral Society." Its object was to secure a better observance of the Sabbath, to check 
intemperance and to encourage whatever would promote good morals. Mr. Humphrey's biographer* 
says of him : " He was one of the earliest and most vigorous pioneers of the temperance movement. 
He assailed the evil with his wonted fearlessness, and, in the winter of 1811-12, preached several 
sermons to his congregation on the subject, filled with strong arguments and glowing appeals. 
His fervid words were not without effect. They were repeated in other places. The subject was 
brought before the Fairfield West Association, with which I\Ir. H"umphrey's church was connected. 
Resolutions were adopted by which the use of spirituous liquors was prohibited at meetings of 
the ministerial association, and pledges were made to discourage, by word and by example, both 
the use and the sale of ardent spirits." In referring to this movement, Mr. Humphrey says: "The 
reports of ministers and delegates at the next annual meeting were exceedingly encouraging. It 
appeared that a great change had been produced in the views and habits of all the more enlight- 
ened classes throughout the district. In some churches and congregations the consumption of 
ardent spirits had been reduced one third, in others, one half, and in others, more than half. In 
nearly all the respectable families within our limits, the decanters and glasses had been swept 
from the sideboards; a great many of our church members and others had adopted the principle 
of total abstinence ; some of our largest farmers carried the principle successfully through haying 
and harvesting; all our ministers had entered heartily into the reformation; and I am confident 
that from that day to this, embracing a period of twenty-two years, no ardent spirits have been 
provided at their stated meetings." 

At the end of ten years of happy and successful labor in Fairfield, the health of Mr. 
Humphrey yielded under the pressure of his work. His salary, also, of six hundred dollars, 
which was at first sufficient, became inadequate for the support of a growing family, as the war 
of 1 8 1 2 occasioned a rapid advance in the prices of the necessaries of life. At length he felt 
forced to request a dismission, and in the face of many protests from his people a meeting of the 
Consociation was called, and after a "full hearing" he was dismissed in May, 18 17. So great was the 
attachment of the people to him that, a few months after his removal, while he was considering 
invitations to serve other churches, he was strongly solicited to return and be resettled over the 
parish in Fairfield. In November of the same year he accepted a call from the Congregational 
church in Pittsfield, Mass., and was installed in his new ministry during that munth. "By the 
then existing laws of Massachusetts the whole population of each inwn was taxable for the sujijioit 
of the pastor excepting such as filed certificates setting forth lliat they belungeil ti) scmic uther 

» Rev. Z. M Humphrey, D. D. 



than the Congregational denomination. Thus the settlement of a pastor was a 'town-meeting 
affair.' Certain lands for his use were set apart b)' the township, and the salary was thus provided 
for by a sort of Puritanical union of Church and State. When Mr. Humphrey was called to take 
charge of the church and parish in Pittsfield, the terms in which the invitation was expressed 
reveal the transition then taking place from the old parish system to that of modern times. The 
change is indicated in the following e.xtract : 

'Voted, That in case the Rev. Heman Humphrey shall conclude to accept the invitation of 
the town to settle over them in the work of the Gospel ministry, they will, and do, hereby agree 
to grant him the sum of nine hundred dollars as his stated salary, so long as he shall continue 
their minister as aforesaid : provided that he shall relinquish to the town all claims that he may 
have to the ministry lands or property belonging to the town.'" 

When he was installed, the whole town of Pittsfield virtually formed his parish. The Con- 
gregational church, however, was in a very divided and critical condition. The church had been 
rent a few years previously by a political convulsion. After seven years of division in separate 
churches, and much bitterness of feeling and recrimination, there was found to be a strong and 
general disposition to reunite. Both pastors resigned, the two congregations came together under 
the old roof, and Mr. Humphrey was invited to undertake the task of promoting organic union. 
This was a difficult work to accomplish. Neighborhoods and families had been involved in the 
long standing and bitter quarrel which had disturbed the peace of the whole town. But under 
the judicious management of Mr. Humphrey, and by the exercise of the benevolent spirit, patient 
energy and M-ise counsels so characteristic of him, the old wounds were healed, the spirit of har- 
mony took the place of discord, and success crowned his labors both as preacher and pastor. 

As illustrating his skill and prudence in winning the disaffected or the indifferent, an 
instance is still repeated in that region of his conquering the heart of a farmer who had steadily 
refused to attend the Sunday services: — " By visiting him in his harvest-field, and, without a word 
of professional exhortation, engaging him in conversacion upon farming, and then taking his cradle 
and cutting a swath of grain as if he had been used only to a farmer's life all his days, Mr. 
Humphrey completely won the respect and admiration of his former opponent, who was known 
thereafter among his neighbors as 'the man whom the minister cradled into the meeting-house.'" 

As a writer and preacher Mr. Humphrey is thus described: "What is most observable in 
his early productions is an intense earnestness and a certain robust quality. The sweep of his 
sentences is like that of the arm which could reap an acre per day in the harvest-field. The 
thought is clear and the manner of expression forcible and vivid. By practice he gained rapid 
improvement, and soon became one of the most attractive preachers of the day. His voice was 
strong and mellow, and his delivery animated, often powerful. His eloquence was never stormy, 
but was frequently impassioned in a high degree. His strain was always dignified and lofty, and 
he would sacrifice nothing to effect. He would make use of effect only so far as it might aid 
him in promoting the triumphs of the Gospel. His ' Invocation ' in the Sanctuary was often as 
solemn as if he expected the departed glories of the Shekinah to burst again into the house of 
God. Though his preaching was in a great measure doctrinal yet he centered all his hopes and 
all the hope of the world upon the Cross. His presentation of truth was designed to promote 
an absolute dependence upon the Triune God as Sovereign, Sanctifier, and Redeemer. He was 
satisfied with nothing less than the rectification of the affections as well as of the will." 

Mr. Humphrey was wont, with devout thanksgivings, to refer whatever success attcniled 
his ministry in Pittsfield to the abundant revivals with which the town was blessed during his 
pastorate. The most remarkable of these occurred in 1S21, when the distinguished evangelist of 
that day, the Rev. Asahel Nettleton, D. D., assisted him in his arduous labors. He gives this 
account of its power: "The revival pervaded all classes, and extended to all parts of the town: 
but principally affected heads of families, and the prominent men of the village. The whole face 

of the community was changed. Religion was the all-absorbing topic of .conversation. The revival 
continued all summer. On the first Sabbath of November the harvest was gathered in to the 
church, and a glorious harvest it was. Between eighty and ninety, the rich and the poor, the 
high and the low, the old and the young, stood up together in the long aisle, and, before angels 
and men, avouched the Lord to be their God, and were received into the church. Never had 
such a scene been witnessed in Pittsfield. The joy of the church overflowed in tears and thanks- 
givings. I am sure there must have been great joy in Heaven." The converts of this revival and 
their children have been among the most faithful members of the church to the present day. The 
experience thus obtained confirmed in j\Ir. Humphrey's heart a love for revivals which he never lost. 
"Mr. Humphrey had at this time become identified with almost ever}- prominent organiza- 
tion of the day for the spread of the Gospel. He enjoyed the honor of preaching the sermon at 
the ordination of the first Missionaries of the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign 
Missions to the Sandwich Islands, — Rev. Hiram Bingham and Rev. Asa Thurston. The service 
was held at Goshen, Ct., September 29th, 18 19. He was interested in Asylums and Retreats for 
the unfortunate. He sought the mitigation of unnecessary rigor in prisons and penitentiaries, and 
was alwaj's seeking the wisest and best way to relieve the poor and down-trodden. His sympathy 
for the slave was quick and strong. While recognizing the constitutional difiiculties which em- 
barrassed political action in the matter of American slavery he looked with favor upon all schemes 
which promised a gradual emancipation, and he strenuously opposed all extension of the area of 
slavery by governmental action. He was an earnest friend of colonization so long as that seemed 
to promise most for the relief of the slave." 

In 1823, Dr. Humphrey (who during this year received the degree of Doctor of Divinity 
from Middlebury College) was invited to assume the Presidency of the institution which now bears 
the honored name of Amherst College. He refers to this appointment as occasioning the most 
trying crisis of his pastoral life. His attachment to his people was most ardent, and so great 
was their love for him that when he proposed a council of his ministerial brethren to aid him in 
deciding the question of duty his congregation refused to unite with him in the measure, and he 
was forced to take the step alone. The Council advised him to accept the Presidency, and the 
pastoral bond was severed. 

There was little that could be alluring to an ease-loving nature or to a worldly ambition 
in the task which he now undertook. The Institution was in a rudimentary state. After several 
years of preparatory work it had developed into an Academy with an Act of Incorporation, with 
one Professorship, of Languages, and with a Charity Fund of fifty thousand dollars, designed to 
aid young men in their education who were preparing to enter the Christian ministrv. The work 
of raising up and establishing upon this foundation a new College, which should honorably com- 
pete with older Institutions and become a power for good in the world, was to be the real 
life-work of Dr. Humphrey, and he threw himself into it with his whole soul. "Year after year, 
time after time, saw him calmly asking the State to grant a Charter to the Institution. The 
opposition throughout the State to the establishment of a third college (Harvard and Williams 
being sustained by powerful friends,) had to be overcome. From local jealousies half the town of 
Amherst itself opposed the location, and voted against it. No pen could ever record the long 
conferences, the perplexed thoughts, the fearful apprehensions, the wearying vexations, which ex- 
cited the brain and wore on the nerves of one whose whole heart was given to this enterprise. " 
As we follow the history of the desperate struggle we find the petition for a Charter at Icnjjih 
prevailing in the Senate, but defeated in .the House. We find Dr. Humphrey gathering funds to 
meet the requirements of the Legislature. Then we meet him in contests with unscrupulous 
lawyers in whose hands the scales arc held. His wisdom and skill triumphed over chicanery, his 
patient ])crsistence surmounted unnumbered obstacles, and at length, in 1824. the Charter was 
obtained. But this was only one step gained, though a most important one. Buildings must be 


provided. Recitation rooms, a chapel, library and apparatus were all wanting. Slowly the walls 
went up as did the walls of Jerusalem under Nehemiah. Besides all the outside labors President 
Humphrey was carrying on, he was instructing the Senior Class in more than a half-dozen 
branches, and for two years after the chapel was completed, 1S27-2S, he supplied the pulpit 
regularly. In 1834, his health had become so impaired by incessant toil that friends urged his 
spending some months in Europe, and defrayed his expenses. This journey was of great service 
to him. After his return his official duties were less burdensome, and the College was furnished 
with a full corps of eminent professors. "He was at this time a systematic student, devoting 
much of his leisure to literary composition. He was a regular contributor to the religious 
journals of the day. His public addresses in the pulpit and on the platform were frequent. His 
voice became familiar at all the great centers of benevolent effort. The soundness of his judg- 
ment became as widely known as the mingled wisdom and eloquence of his lips, and far and 
near he was consulted in ecclesiastical matters." 

One of his most vigorous discourses was an address to the students of Amherst College, 
July 4th, 1828, the subject being "A Parallel betxyeen Intemperance and the Slave Trade." This 
address was printed, and gained a wide circulation. He delivered a discourse on "Indian Rights 
and our Duties," in 1829, which was occasioned by the forcible expulsion of the Indians from 
Georgia by a direct act of nullification, by the State, of treaties formed by the Federal Government. 
This address contained words of warning which in the light of to-day seem remarkably prophetic : 
"Do you tell me that there is no possible danger — that no man nor number of men will ever 
dare to assail our free and glorious institutions.' Let the history of past republics, or rather, let 
their tombstones decide between us. So it would have been said, when Washington and Jefferson 
were at the head of affairs, that no one would ever dare to disinherit or enslave the Indians, 
protected as they are by more than a hundred and fifty governmental treaties. And how much 
better are our parchment defenses than theirs.' If such encroachments, acquiesced in, do not pre- 
pare the way for even greater violations of the public faith, our children will have to be protected 
by higher munitions than our vaunted constitutional bulwarks." 

In Dr. Humphrey's personal association with the students under his charge he was peculiarly 
happy in impressing them by the force of his character, and in gaining their confidence and reverent 
affection. By his familiar lectures in the class-room, and by his frequent fatherly counsels to all, 
he manifested his deep interest in whatever concerned their true welfare. None who watched his 
daily life, whether it flowed on in even course or led through peculiar en^ergencies and trials, 
could doubt that the Christian truth he so earnestly proclaimed was his vital inspiration and 
strength. A touching illustration of the spirit with which he met sore personal bereavement is 
given by one of his former students: "In July, 1S40, President Humphrey's son Henry, then a 
member of the Sophomore Class, a young man of fascinating beauty and brilliant promise, was 
seized suddenly, in the midst of robust health, with an acute inflammatory disease, and died in 
a few hours. The next morning we were all surprised to see the President in his accustomed 
place at morning prayers in the chapel. His face was pale, and he had a worn and exhausted 
appearance, but he arose as the college bell ceased its ringing, and calmly, sweetly read, not 
any wail of lamentation and anguish, but the cheering words of the 103d Psalm: 'Bless the 
Lord, O viy soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name,' and so on to the impressive words, 
'He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities,' closing with 
the words, 'Praise ye the Lord.' Then he offered such a prayer as would be likely to follow such 
a Scripture read under such circumstances — a prayer that was full of tenderness but transparently 
trustful. There was nothing of stoicism or assumed absence of emotion in the service, but there 
was a quiet mastery of faith over feeling by a strength that was borrowed from the unseen 
and eternal." 

In speaking uf President Humphrey's connection with the College his biographer says : "Had 

he no farther honor than this, that he secured the launching and equipment of his ship, and 
piloted it out of a crooked harbor into an open sea, that were enough for one who beholds 
Amherst College as it is now. But his honor is greater than this. He, more than any one else, 
was instrumental in giving the College its character. Under his administration the purpose of its 
founders was realized. They desired it to be a training-school for the Church, a seminary for the 
education especially of ministers and missionaries of the Cross. That this desire might be realized 
was the potent motive which drew him from the pastorate in Pittsfield. He was unceasingly 
solicitous for the religious interests of the institution. In one of- his addresses to the Alumni of 
the College he says : ' It seems to me the richest smile of Heaven upon Amherst College that 
no class has ever graduated without passing, at least once, under the cloud which has so often 
poured out righteousness upon it. If, in its former strait.s, every drop had been fine gold, how 
meagre the blessing compared with these effusions of the Holy Spirit. Let this College be swept 
from under these glorious skies sooner than any other Gospel shall be preached within these walls 
than that which has been made the wisdom of God and the power of God unto salvation.' 
During his connection with the College four hundred and thirty of the eight hundred graduates 
became ministers of the Gospel, and thirty-nine were sent abroad as missionaries. Let any one 
who is anxious to see what order of students has come from this institution study its Triennials, 
see what distinguished names are on its roll, and how many of those names are printed in the 
honored italics which designate ministers of the Gospel." 

When Dr. Humphrey had reached the age of sixty-five, having filled the Presidential office 
twenty-two years, he felt that the time had come to retire from the burdens and responsibilities 
of the position. After his resignation, in April, 1845, he selected Pittsfield, Mass., as his residence 
for the remainder of his life — the town where he had passed the 3-ears of his second pastorate. 
Here he was welcomed with great affection, and his return was regarded as a blessing to the 
community. Says one: "The children of his former parishioners seemed to have brought such 
memories out of their forming years that they regarded him with a reverence as nearly saintly as 
is consistent with Puritan character, and all felt that it was like a benediction simply to see him 
passing through our streets." As the years went on, the position accorded him in the town was 
almost phenomenal. In connection with very many families his relationship was truly patriarchal. 
Their homes, their tables, their gardens with all they contained of beauty or fruitage, were as 
open to him as if each one had been his own. The sick and the dying watched eagerly for his 
coming, and for the comfort of his ministrations, and when some heavy sorrow fell with crushing 
weight upon a household, the most natural cry seemed to be, "Send for Dr. Humphrey." 

He interested himself actively in all village affairs: in the establishment of a public library; 
in the introduction of water and gas; in the " Tree- Planting Association" which bears his name, for 
the shading of the streets; and in the building of a Medical College. "He found the old church 
whose severed parts had been so kindly knit under his ministry had become so large that division 
was as much a duty as reunion had been twenty-eight vears before. A colony was soon formed 
with which he identified himself, although this step involved much self-sacrifice. A new house of 
worship was provided for the colony, largely in consequence of his influence and exertions." Nor 
were his labors confined to the town in which he lived. He went through the State endeavoring 
to arouse new interest in missions; he delivered lectures, and his pen was never idle. His con- 
tributions at this time to the New York Observer, over the signature of "The Old Man of the 
Mountains," were looked for with special interest. His services were in frequent demand to 
supply vacant pulpits, and his discourses to his latest years often glow with the fire which distin- 
guished them in his youth. In an address delivered in Pittsfield, in 1854, (in his seventy-sixth 
year,) when the "Missouri Compromise," prohibiting the extension of Slavery in certain territories, 
was threatened with the repeal called the "Nebraska Bill," he thus poured out his indi,gnant protest: 
"What if that venerable man of God, Rev. Thomas Allen (a former pastor of the Pittsfield church. 


who also served in the Revolutionary army), who sleeps in yonder tomb, could be waked up, 
and have the Nebraska Bill with its black section put into his hands — what would He say? I 
declare to you, I would not for any price go and knock at the door of that tomb, if I knew 
that I could bring him up, except it were in the last extremity of expiring liberty, that he might 
again buckle on his armor and march up to the cannon's mouth. No ! let him sleep, and never 
till the day of judgment know anything of the atrocious conspiracy which has been concocted this 
winter at the seat of Government !" 

Dr. Humphrey's loyal heart was also intensely stirred when, in 1861, the storm of the 
Civil war rose in the sky with its threatening portents. "He was appointed, by the clergymen 
of Pittsfield,' to deliver a sermon at a union meeting on the day of National Fasting and Prayer, 
which was observed January 4th, 1861. He accepted the invitation with all the ardor of youth, 
and the result was a discourse which, for argument, for eloquence, for religious and patriotic fire, 
equalled the best efforts of his meridian days. It was a wonderful discourse to have been pre- 
pared and delivered by a man standing on the edge of his eighty-third year." 

Dr. Humphrey had a strong physical constitution. This enabled him to withstand to a 
remarkable degree the severe strains often made upon it, through the whole course of his life. 
In person, he was above the medium height and well developed. His eye was dark and mild; 
his Shakespearian head, as seen in his portrait, was in earlier life crowned with dark clustering 
hair, and until past middle life his face was full and ruddy. He was at that period a noticeably 
handsome man. His manner combined great dignity with true courtesy and- affability. 

In his home life Dr. Humphrey grew more and more genial and companionable with every 
advancing year. Though a man of rich and deep affections, which were bestowed without measure 
upon his family, yet the custom of the times and of the home in which he was reared, together 
with the degree of reserve always natural to him, made it diflicult for him to "unbend" with his 
children when they were young, and he was not peculiarly demonstrative or familiar in his in- 
tercourse with them. But he grew more free and full in the expression of feeling under the 
mellowing effect of his later and less burdened years, and his companionship was the joy and 
delight of all. His conversation was lighted with the play of humor so characteristic of him, ami 
he was always fond of a harmless joke. His biographer says of him: "He was a man of great 
simplicity and magnanimity of character; guileless and transparent as a child; ever ready to 
apologize for and to forgive an enemy. While always self-respecting in the best sense of the term, 
he united with this quality rare humility. His benevolence was large and systematic. Among 
his papers was a memorandum-book in which he was in the habit of entering each item of his 
income, the payment for a newspaper article or a Sunday's preaching among the rest. Against 
every entry was a cross, followed by the fractional sign which indicated the generous proportion 
he appropriated to benevolence. This was his 'charity fund,' and thus he had always something 
to give from that which ha'd already passed into the Lord's treasury. Outside of this he would, 
in his charities, often 'give upon faith,' as he called it, gifts which might seem extravagant in any 
other light than that which shone upon them from his spirit of implicit confidence that 'the 
Lord will provide.''' 

The Rev. John Todd, of Pittsfield, said of him: "Through Dr. Humphrey humanity was 
taught to the whole community. All the way through life he carried this trait. It sought the 
salvation of a world, the good of his country, and considered the need of the little child as he 
walked without shade to school." His kindly feeling always extended in a marked degree to the 
animals under his care. One of his daughters remembers standing, when a child, by his bedside 
one Thanksgiving morning, with all the usual glory of the day dimmed for her by the severe 
illness which had suddenly prostrated him and cast unwonted pallor over his face. She vividly 
recalls the gleam of relief that dispelled her alarm when she heard him speak in his natural tone 
and caught the glimmer in his eye as he said to her brother, "My son, do not forget that the 


cows have roweti on Thanksgiving day, and as much as they will eat." It had long been his 
custom thus to include even the cattle in the Thanksgiving feast. 

Dr. and Mrs. Humphrey had ten children: Edward, James, Sophia, and John, were born 
in Fairfield, Ct. ; Lucy, the first Mar}', and Henry, in Pittsfield, Mass. ; Zephaniah, the second 
Mary, and Sarah, in Amherst, Mass. 

In 1858, the surviving children and grandchildren of the family had the happiness of cele- 
brating the Golden Wedding of their revered parents. It was an occasion for home gathering of 
all the scattered branches of the household, and of grateful and tender rejoicings. The citizens 
of Pittsfield shared heartily in the festivities, and manifested their interest by gifts which are treasured 
as heir-looms in the family. The children of those friends in Fairfield who had welcomed the 
young bride to her new home, in 1808, came to share the sunset glow of the fiftieth anniversary. 
In the spring of 1861, Dr. Humphrey, after a short illness, during which rapturous gleams 
and anticipations of the Heavenly state broke at intervals through the clouds of delirium, "fell on 
sleep," April 3d. His burial was attended from the Congregational church, and a most apprecia- 
tive sermon was preached by Rev. John Todd, pastor of the church at that time. It was no 
formal tribute, it was but the natural sequel of all that had gone before, that when he was 
borne to the grave, the stores along the line of the procession were closed, all the bells of the 
village were tolled, and those who had abandoned all other duty went in solemn order to the 
place where the revered form was laid. A granite monument now marks the spot where he lies 
in the Pittsfield Cemetery, inscribed with the text upon which he so delighted to dwell, both in 
private meditation and in the pulpit, "Increasing in the knowledge of God."* 

Mrs. Humphrey survived her husband several years, and died in Pittsfield, Mass., on 
Sunday, December 13th, 1868, se. 83 years.

better impression of her character than by adding the following tribute to her 
worth, prepared by her husband : — 

"From her childhood she was regarded by her father's friends, and by her 
own, as possessing rare qualities of mind and heart. Her countenance w^as sug- 
gestive of hidden power and resource, reminding one of the vibration and light 
of the sea. Her eyes were dark and full of meaning: and when she spoke, her 
truth was in her words. Thus it was in Pittsfield, in her early youth; thus, when

t John Neill, the first ascertained American ancestor of Dr. Henry Neill, entered upon the practice of the law, in the county of 
Sussex, in the Slate of Delaware, as early as the year 1739. The courts of Sussex were held at Lewes, and at thai town he established 

his residence. He married Elizabeth , who survived him, and died 26 May, 1771. There is a tradition in the family that John 

Neill emigrated from Tyrone, Province of Ulster, Ireland. 

Dr. John Neill, their son, and the grandfather of Dr. Henry Neill, was bom 3 June, 1749, Lewes, Delaware; and died in June, 
1816. He married, 16 June, 1773, Elizabeth Martin, of Snow Hill, Md., where they resided. 

Dr. Henry Neill, their son, and the father of Dr. Henry Neill, was bom 12 Mch. 1783, Snow Hill, Md.; d. 7 Oct. 1845, Belviderc,

she received instruction away from home; and thus at Amherst, when, under the 
stimulus of literature, and the influence of her father's house and the college, and 
the admiration which her nature and acquirements commanded, she grew in that 
attractiveness which never left her. She was neither timid nor sad. She received 
the good that came to her, and enjoyed it. * * * Whilst gratified at the 
success of those who were dear to her, her life was in her affections. She loved 
her friends; and all beautiful things; and God. She was rich in trust and in hope. 
There was thai in her which caused people to lean upon her, as she strengthened 
them by what her soul imparted. Her judgment was comprehensive, and seldom 
in error; and it was made generous by the breadth of her charity, and the depth 
of her feeling. Thoroughly educated, ripe in sentiment, profound and discerning 
intellectually, and of a warm heart, she entered the gates of light, beloved, as 
only such a wife, and mother, and sister can be. She received Christ so fully 
that her faith was not dependent upon her emotions. It was in the ' Lord our 

Dr. Neill received instruction in Latin and Greek from Samuel B. \\'ylie, 
and entered the University of Pennsylvania, Freshman class, in 1S29. He united 
with the First Presbyterian Church, under the care of Rev. Albert Barnes, in 1832. 
The following year he went to Amherst College, entering the last term of the 
Junior class, and graduated in 1834. During the years 1835-36, he taught the 
classics in Fayetteville, North Carolina; was at Lane Theological Seminary, 1836- 
39, and at Andover, in 1839. 

He was installed minister of Hatfield, Mass., 16 April, 1840, and there 
remained till 15 April, 1846; was invited to Lenox, Mass., and installed there 
26 Aug., 1846; continued there until 4 Jan., 1854. He was called to the pastorate 
of the Fort Street Church, Detroit, Michigan, in 1853, and installed over that 
congregation 15 Oct., 1854. During his ministry in Detroit, the house of worship 
known as the Fort Street Church was completed, and its membership largely 
increased. He resigned 15 June, 1857. December 6th, 1857, he was installed 
pastor of the Westminster Church, in the same city. This church was organized 
by Mr. Neill in connection with the Old School branch of the Presbyterian Church. 
He remained in Detroit until 24 April, 1861. During the war, he took charge 
of the church at Geneseo, New York, from i Jan., 1862 to i Jan., 1866; served 
the churches of West Stockbridge and Richmond, near Pittsfield, Mass., from 
1867 to 1869. He was afterward installed over the Second Presbyterian Church 
at New Brunswick, continuing there from 1869 to 1871. Mrs. Neill being in 
delicate health, he went to South Carolina for her restoration, and officiated, for 
the winter of 1871-72, in the church at Hopewell, South Carolina; returned to 
Philadelphia in 1872, and organized the church at Bryn Mawr, Montgomerj- Co., 
Pa., in November, of that 3-ear, supplying the pulpit of that church from January 
to November, 1873. He retired from regular duties in 1873, and took up his 
residence in Philadelphia, where he died 21 April, 1879, ve. 63 years.

Mrs. Humphrey's P. O. address is (1884) Batavia, N. Y. 

Hector Humphrey was associated with his brother Bissell, in the hotel and stage business, 
up to the time the latter removed to Michigan; and he afterwards engaged in the livery business. 
He was much esteemed by his townsmen and a large circle of acquaintances as a good neighbor, 
and a man of probity and honest dealings. He was a born wag and story-teller, — "a tellow of 
infinite jest;" had a keen insight and appreciation of the ludicrous in character and might have 
made his mark on the "boards," as a humorist or comedian. In his last sickness, his numerous 
friends took turns as night-watchers with him, among them the late Mr. Lucas Seaver, a brother 
of the late William A. Seaver, the recent editor of the "Drawer' in Harper's Monlhly, and himself 
a man of many accomplishments. A few days before Mr. Humphreys demise, he e.xpressed his 
regret to Mr Seaver that he should have been so much of a tax on the kindness and patience 
of his friends; but was promptly stopped with, "Mr. Humphrey, these apologies are entirely super- 
fluous and unnecessary. The obligation is upon us. You have entertained us all.' And this 
undoubtedly expressed the general sentiment. There was no sting to our humorist's humor. The 
subject of it, while figuring for the amusement of others, generally acquired, in his involuntary 
role of a laughing-stock, a sort of compensating distinction and popularity that never forsook him. 
Mr. Humphrey had an inexhaustible fund of anecdotes about all sorts of odd customers who had 
been thrown in his way, — many of them his personal acquaintances, — and his good-humored de- 
lineations of their peculiarities, and stories in illustration of them, were inimitable in their way, 
and are still remembered and quoted. Doctor Samuel Johnson remarked to Boswell, that "to be 
a good mimic requires great powers; great acuteness of observation; great retention of what is 
observed; and great pliancy of organs to represent what is observed." This is true without a 
doubt; and notwithstanding Dr. Johnson's accompanying observation that "it is making a very 
mean use of a man's powers," it is a rare power, and the noted possessors of it have generally 
managed to secure their full share of immortality along with other artists.*

others, but to me ,it was the first and most lasting impression I have of all my 
dead father's teachings." So, having improved the opportunities of home schooling, 
at the early age of fourteen she started out, not shrinking from hardship and 
privation, to attain the one aim of her life, — an education. Her father's will and 
perseverance were repeated in his child, and at the age of si.xteen she was qualified 
for teaching. By that means she supported herself, and, at the age of twenty, 
graduated in the State Normal School of Iowa. Shortly afterward, August 2d, 
1865, she was married to Judge William J. Haddock, who was of old Scotch 
Covenanter stock, b. 28 Feb., 1835, in County Antrim, Ireland. He was the 
oldest child of John and Elinor (McBride) Haddock, and, when fifteen years 
old, came with his parents to Philadelphia; subsequently, in 1855, settled at 
Iowa City. He graduated from the Normal Department of the Iowa State 
University, in June, 1861; studied law with Hon. Rush Clark, and became his 
partner in 1866. He was appointed Judge of the Circuit Court in 1872; and 
has been Secretary of the Board of Regents of Iowa University since 1865. 

Mrs. Haddock continued to pursue the avocation of teaching for two years 
after her marriage, and then settled down to domestic life. At the expiration of 
ten years, at her husband's suggestion, she took up the study of law, which 
greatly fascinated her, and graduated, in June, 1875, from the Law Department 
of Iowa State University and, in 1877, received from the same institution a 
certificate for special proficiency in the law, after an advanced course of post- 
graduate study. She is constantly occupied in her husband's law oflSce, doing 
much of the office work, and enjoying it, but avoiding publicity. She has never 
connected herself with any Woman's Rights Society, but believes that woman's 
advancement depends more upon what she does than what she petitions. Res. (18S3) 
in Iowa Cilv, Iowa. No children.

3I03- Manna' Humphrey, [1496] {Lhabod,^ Samuel,^ Lieut. Samuel'- Ensign Samuel,^ 
Lieut. Samuel,- iMichael.' ) was born, probably, in October, 1790, at Barkhamsted, Ct.* When 
he was quite young he went with his parents to reside on the old homestead of his maternal 
grandfather, Daniel Olmstead, Jr.,f which was located in Simsbury (Bushy Hill), Ct. He was 
married by James* Humphrey, Justice of the Peace, [Fam. 88, S.=] in Simsbury, Ct., 26 April, 
1825,1 to Tryphena (dau. of Ephraim** and Keziah Wheaton) Baldwin, of Simsbury, b. 30 Oct., 
17S7, in North Branford, Ct. She was a sister of Isaac Baldwin, who married Widow Marie 
Goodrich, daughter of Theodore and Cynthia (Woodford) Humphrey [Fam. 75, S.^; see Add.]; 
and also a sister of Emeline Baldwin, who married Dwight? Humphrey, Esq., [Fam. 89 (1578), S.^'] 

Mr. Humphrey served as a commissary in the army, in the war of 18 12, and his widow 
received a pension. While stationed at New London, Ct., General David Phelps sent him to 
convey a message to his wife, then living in Granby, Ct. He was noted for his pedestrianism, 
and on this occasion started on his errand early in the morning and walked to Granby, arriving 
there at about eight o'clock in the evening. He afterward received a letter from the General 
commending him for his honest and trustworthy services. 

He was a farmer, and resided in Simsbury, on the paternal homestead: was well-known in 
the community as a man of great integrity. He was also noted for his pleasant jokes and genial 
disposition. He died in Simsbury, 22 May, 1855, ae. 65 years. ff By his industry, and that of 
his wife, he had accumulated a comfortable property, and at his death left to her the sole use of 
half of all his real and personal estate. His widow continued to occupy the farm, her son Charles 
R. Humphrey residing with her. She died in Simsbury, 7 Feb., 1S82, re. 94 )'ears; and was 
buried in Bushy Hill Cemetery. Her granddaughter, Mrs. Marion E. Case, writes concerning 
her: "She was a woman of superior education, considering the early years of the country, anil 
had a remarkable memory; was familiar with ancient history, and frequently told me that she 
began at the age of ten years to read the Bible, and had read it through twenty times. She was 
a member of the Congregational church in West Avon, Ct." 

• M.inna may be derived from Emmanuel, as a member of the Humphrey family, in an earlier generation, bore that name. (See 
Fam. 6 (1651, S.)

t Lydia Cowles was the hcrome of the story entitled "The Puritan .^pple-Tree," which was published in the Ilarl/ord Courant 
of September 14th, 1S67. It is as follows : 

"Nearly a century ago, in West Avon, formerly called Northington, Ct., two children, on a Sabbath, in the absence of their 
parents, found an apple sprout in the field which they pulled up and set out in the door-yard. The parents on their return, learning 
how the little ones had broken the Sabbath, were righteously indignant. The jdant had not only been pulled up, but set out before sun- 
down ! The children were severely reprimanded, and to make the admonition effectual, according to the custom of the good old times, 
they were also punished, and with the instrument of transgression. The parents — this time, and before sundown — uprooted the fatal 
apple-tree, and gave the children a lively switching with it, and then threw it over the fence into the ditch. The little lolks had now 
obtained a personal interest in that apple sprout, and as soon as the sun went down they again carefully set it out in the yard. It re- 
mained, and grew to be a great and useful tree, which is now two feet through in the trunk, and still yields a fine crop of apples annually." 
Mrs. Lydia (Cowles) Chidsey died in Candor, N. Y., about 1870, aged nearly 100 years. Her husband, Timothy Chidsey, was 
bom in Connecticut: and died at Candor, in May, 1840, a;. 70 years. 


1 868, to Owego, in the same county; was engaged in agricultural pursuits. He was a man of 
active habits, prominent!}- known in business circles for his intelligence, prudence, and success. 
He was honorably and intimately identified with the public interests of Tioga County. In his 
social relations he was eminently practical, open, genial, benevolent and charitable. His upright, 
consistent conduct was a standing rebuke to the equivocal customs current and common among 
business men. Concerning these practices, and in regard to all questions relating to religious truth, 
he maintained a fidelity worthy of imitation. He became a communicant in the Presbyterian church, 
in 1820, and led an exemplary Christian life. His death occurred at Owego, N. Y., 14 April, 
1878, at the age of 78 years. 

Mrs. Humphrey survived her husband several years, and died at the residence of her son- 
in-law. Dr. J. D. Quinlan, in Evanston, 111., 3 Mch., 1884, se. 81 years. We add the following 
sketch of her life, which appeared in T/ie Evanston Index, March 15th, 1884: 

"When she was a child, the parents of INIrs. Humphrey removed to Owego, N. Y. Here the 
young life of this truly noble woman rapidly developed under the tuition of the Christian teachers of 
that day, and she united with the Presbyterian Church, of which she was always a loving, loyal 
member. - She early indicated a love and zeal for thorough knowledge, and subsequently became a 
pupil of Mrs. Emma Willard, at her Seminary in Troy. The relations of teacher and pupil soon 
ripened into the personal friendship of years. The inestimable value of these associations was 
realized and appreciated to the latest days of her life. Returning from school life. Miss Bell, as 
familiarly known to hundreds of the youth of the day, became one of the most successful teachers 
of Western and Central New York. As a Christian teacher, eternity alone will reveal the work, 
well done, upon the minds and hearts of those intrusted to her keeping. 

"In later years, as wife and mother, surrounded by a large family, she exerted an influence 
in the home made beautiful by her grace and ministry which comes to-day as a blessed inherit- 
ance to the loving and afflicted children, who 'rise up and call her blessed.' 

"Hers was that rare character, that none, from the saddest and poorest to the highest and 
most learned, ever came into her presence without feeling that the atmosphere itself was purer 
and sweeter for the words of love and comfort, purity and wisdom, which flowed so naturally 
from her sympathetic, great heart. 

"After the decease of her husband, in 1S78, Mrs. Humphrey visited the home of her daughter, 
Mrs. J. D. Quinlan, where, after repeated journeys East and West, she at length became a loved 
and honored member of the household. Though in many respects it was a great trial to leave 
old associations and friends of the East, Mrs. Humphrey, with her lovely dignity, ease and culti- 
vation, soon made many warm and attached friends, whose kindly courtesies added greatly to her 
happy, peaceful life. 

"When laid aside by reason of failing strength from the former activity of doing greater 
things in the service of her Master, she was lovingly content to serve in humbler ways. Many 
are the deeds of mercy, acts of kindness, and words of strength and encouragement, of which she 
has been the quiet, unknown instrument, in her life among us. 

"She was a firm, stalwart believer in Christianity; loved the house of God, and was often 
found there after her hearing had become impaired; but as this infirmity increased she preferred 
to spend the hours of Divine service in prayer and meditation, thus living in intimate communion 
with her Savior. 

"During the last few months, when a fatal malady had made its appearance, from which 
was anticipated severe and continued sufli"ering, she was enabled through faith to be resigned to 
suffer God's will. She 'set her house in order," antl attended personally to every detail, however mi- 
nute, that could be of any benefit or comfort to her loved children. Forgetful only of self— and 
without a murmur, she calmly and trustfully awaited the coming of the Master. One after another 
cif her devoted children hastened to the bedside of tiieir venerated mother, hastening with burdened 


hearts, only to find her with firm, unfaltering faith, her countenance already illumined with the 
'sufficient grace of God,' and so received the mother's blessing, knowing that naught could befall 
the dear one thus held in the everlasting arms. 'She hath done what she could.' 

"The funeral services were held on Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock, at the family residence. 
Rev. Dr. Noyes speaking from the words, 'Blessed in the sight of the Lord is the death of His 
saints.' Rev. W. O. Lattimore followed with words of comfort and inspiration, and feelingly re- 
ferred to interviews of personal communion with the deceased. The quartette rendered 'Nearer, 
my God, to Thee,' and 'Jesus, lover of my soul,' with impressive tenderness. The remains were 
then carried to Graceland Cemetery, where they will rest until the Resurrection Morn."

3160. i. Charles Humphrey,' b. 21 Sept. 1853. He, in his youth, gave evidence of a mind of 

more than ordinary ability and activity. At an early age he was attacked by a peculiar 
form of inflammatory rheumatism, which followed him through life, increasing in 
severity as time passed. It was his desire to pursue a collegiate course with a view 
to the legal profession, but again and again the distressing disease foiled his eff'orts 
and disappointed his hopes. In the summer of 1873, having tried in vain all that med- 
ical skill could do, he decided to test a change of climate, and accordingly started, on 
the 2l5t of June, across the continent to California, and thence to China. After spend- 
ing a couple of months in Shanghai he went to Singapore in the East Indies, intending 
to pass the winter there, but, attacked again by his dreaded enemy, a severe illness 
followed. After partially recovering, being warned that a longer stay in that climate 
would be injurious, he decided to go forward, and crossed the Indian Ocean to Ceylon, 
from thence to Calcutta. He remained in India three months, making Allahabad his 
principal stopping-place, and visiting the numerous points of interest in that country. 
During his stay there he gathered much information regarding the people, their customs 
and religions. From Allahabad he went to Bombay, crossed the Arabian sea and 
through the Red sea to Italy, visiting the iiriiicipal cities of Europe. He sailed from 
Liverpool, and reached New York early in June, 1874, having made a complete circuit 
of the globe. 

Flattered by a short respite from illness and hoping he had conquered disease, he 
commenced reading law in Middletown, N. Y., and in 1875 entered the Albany Law- 
School, from which he gradnatc<l in May, 1876. It was during these months of study, 
at times of recreation, he wrote the "Memories of Many Lands," an account of his 
travels, which were pubhshed in the MiddUlmun Press. He also originated and was 
senior editor of the Albany Lara School yournal, a paper devoted to the interests of 
the Law School. At the close of the year he was elected to the office of Class Historian, 
which he filled until his death. In the spring of 1877, he entered into partnership 
with Thorndike Saunders, of New York City. 

The bright anticipations of the future were soon darkened by returning illness, and 
fearing the effects of an Eastern winter, he went to Colorado, where he was again 
seized by an attack of rheumatism which proved too severe for his remaining strength, 
an<l of which he died, at Trinidad, Col., October 22d, 1877. He was unmarried. 

"Such is a meager sketch of the life of Charles H. Seward, which may serve to 
show what achievements his perseverance enabled him to accomplish. In the short 
period of twenty-four years, he had shown this to be the material of his fiber. He 
proved himself, during all his struggle, a man of sterling quality; of principles high 
and noble; of heart a Christian. With a beginning so praiseworthy, while contending 
with such discouraging circumstances, we may well have predicted for him a future in 
which he would nobly have supported the reputation of his family's name."

3168. VIII. William Henry,^ b. 5 Sept., 1840, Candor, N. Y. He relinquished academic study 
enlisted in Company H, 64th Reg. N. Y. Vol. Infantry, 
and exemplified the life and death of an earnest, patriotic. Christian soldier. 
From "Camp 64th Reg., near Willis Meadows, Va., May ist, 1864," he wrote 
to his sister: "Before another week rolls over, the Army of the Potomac will 
be on the move, and perhaps a heavy battle fought, and, if a battle, it will be 
one t)f the bloodiest of the war. What my fate will be time will tell. If I am 
to give up my life for my country, so be it, if it will restore our divided country; 
but we must trust in God, for He doeth all things well.'' On May 14th, again 
he wrote: "We fought the greatest battle of the war, 3-esterday, and were victo- 
rious, as our Corps, the 2d, made one of the bravest charges on record. We 


charged on the rebel works, and captured with them 10,000 prisoners and forty 
pieces of artillery. My regiment was on the front line, and lost a great many 
officers and men. We have fifty men and seven officers left. I was not hurt, 
but saved by the hand of Providence." At the time of his death, June 4th. 1864, 
near the termination of his three years' term of service, he had survived twenty- 
three severe battles and skirmishes, and, in a letter to his brother, Hon. H. L. 
Humphrey, written but a few days prior to his death, describing the seven days 
Wilderness fight, he predicted that he should not be killed in battle; and so it 
proved, as he was instantly killed by the bullet of a rebel sharpshooter, while 
changing the picket lines the day after the battle of Cold Harbor, Va. He was 
First Sergeant of his company; was deeply beloved and lamented by his comrades 
and many friends. His commission of Lieutenant in his regiment was at his 
corps (Second Corps) Head-Quarters at the time of his death.

3237. General Ansel' Humphreys, [1574] {Dea. Alvin,^ Dea. T/ieophilus,^ Lieul. Samuel,* 
Ensign Samue/,^ Lieut. Samuel,' Michael,^) was born i June, 1792, in Canton, Hartford Co., Ct. 
He married (i) in that town, 29 Nov., 1814, Lois (dau. of Benjamin and Esther Woodruff) Jones, 
of Southington, Ct., b. 14 ]May, 1798; died in Canton, Ct., 26 Sept., 1821, ae. 23 years. He 
married (2) in Granby, Ct., 18 Apr., 1822, Sarah (dau. of Ozias and Susan) Higley, of G. 
She died in JMuscatine, Iowa, 28 July, 1S40. He married (3) at Muscatine, Iowa, 16 May, 
184 1, Lura Matthews, who died in that place, 24 Dec, 1863. aged 81 years. 
The following notice appeared in a local paper at the time of his death ; — 

"Gen. Ansel Humphreys, one of our oldest and most respected citizens, died at his resi- 
dence in this city (Muscatine, Iowa,) on the evening of the 21st April, 1873, after a brief illness, 
in the 8isf year of his age. He removed to this city (then Bloomington) in the spring of 1840. 
His life has been one of great activity and energy. Possessed of a vigorous physical constitution, 
large intellectual faculties, high moral attributes, and indomitable resolution, he pre-eminently 
became a leader in the communities in which he lived. His ability and singleness of purpose 
soon won the largest measure of respect, and his warm, generous disposition and open-handed 
charity, never closed to the wants of the needy when in his power to aff'ord relief, secured for 
him attachment, love and esteem. 

"About the year 181 2,, Gen. Humphreys was enrolled in the Hartford County Militia; be- 
came Brigadier-General of the First Brigade of Connecticut Militia. He was discharged in 1840, 
with the rank of 'Major-General commanding, having held every grade of office in the service. 
When about leaving Connecticut he was offered, but declined, the position of Adjutant-General of 
the State. For some fifteen years he severally filled the offices of Deputy-Sheriff", Sheriff", Justice 
of the Peace, and other positions of honor and trust. In 1838, he was elected to and served one 
term in the State Senate. In 1S51, he was appointed United Slates Commissioner for the State of 
Iowa, which position he held until the day of his death. 

"It was as a Mason that Gen. Humphreys was most widely known, and his admirable 
qualities shone most conspicuously. He had been a member of the order for fifty-five years, and 
devoted the larger portion of his life to continued and active labor in its service. He has filled 
the highest positions known to the lodges of Ancient Craft Masonry. He occupied the chair of 
master of a lodge alone for thirty years. Before the admission of Iowa as a State, and while the 
Territory was under the jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of Missouri, he was District Deputy 
Grand Master of that Grand Lodge for this Territory. When, in 1844, the Grand Lodge of Iowa 
was formed, he presided over the convention and drafted the constitution of the present Grand 
Lodge. He was three times elected Grand Master, besides serving as Grand Secretary and Grand 
Senior Warden. He loved the order with an ardent and enduring aflfection, believing, as he often 
asserted, that it inculcated the best code of morals of any existing human organization. Its purest 
principles were deeply implanted in his heart; its cardinal virtues — temperance, fortitude, prudence 
and justice — and its most excellent tenets — brotherly love, charity and morality — truly formed the 
rule and guide to his faith and action. At a ripe old age, full of years and honors, he has been 
gathered to his fathers. His death is deeply deplored by a large circle of friends and acquaint- 
ances in this city, and will strike a chord of sorrow in the hearts of many throughout tiio 
State of Iowa."

Southern States as salesman for Hallock & Case, clock manufacturers. In the autumn of 1828, 
they returned to their Pennsylvania farm. Becoming, however, a member of that firm, as was

very successful. At the time of his marriage he lived in Canton, Ct., and afterward continued to

Burlington, Ct., where he was likewise engaged in teaching. He removed from thence to Collins- 
ville, and worked as a carpenter, and on his farm, until a long and severe illness unfitted him 
for hard labor. 

He was a man of good intellect, modest and retiring. Honest and upright himself, he 
looked upon all men as being the same, "believing every man honest until he was proved a rogue." 
Recently, one well acquainted with him remarked, "He was one of the most upright men I ever 
knew." He was gentle but firm, and his word was law in his family. Though slow to anger, he 
was capable of being aroused when occasion demanded. He was an earnest Christian, and patient 
in suffering. He died in Collinsville, Ct, Aug. 5th, 1850, aged 49 years.

Kidder, b. 24 June, 1832, Wardsborough, Vt., where his parents were born and

carriage-maker, in Wardsborough. After serving his apprenticeship, he worked at 
his trade in Saxton's River, Vt., for one month, when, the business being very 
distasteful to him and being fond of music and musical instruments, he found 
employment in an organ, or melodeon, shop in Townshend, Vt. He removed 
from thence to Brattleborough, Vt., and worked in the organ shop of Estey & Co.; 
then went to Plymouth, Indiana, where he taught music; and also traveled to 
some extent through Illinois and Wisconsin. After a two j-ears' sojourn at the 
West, he returned to Westfield, Mass., and worked in Johnson's organ shop two 
years; then went to Northampton, Mass., where he has resided twenty-one years;

(Canton), Ct. He removed with his father's family to Sheldon, N. Y., in 18 18. He married, 5 
July, 1826, Hannah Blakely, of Aurora, Erie Co., N. Y., born 3 Oct., 1807. They lived in 
Sheldon, "Wyoming Co., N. Y., till 1866, when they removed to Warsaw,' in the same county, 
where Mr. Humphrey was engaged" in the leather trade, and also in agricultural pursuits. 

Their five children were present on the occasion of the celebration of their Golden Wedding, 
in 1876. Of their twenty-eight grandchildren, twenty-three were living in 1884; and of their 
seventeen great-grandchildren, twelve were living. 

Mr. Humphrey died at Warsaw, N. Y., 15 Dec, 1884, £e. 85 years. "The past fifteen 
years have been spent by him free from business cares hut in a continual struggle with ill health, 
— for the last six years patiently enduring a total loss of sight. When deprived of active church 
work he still materially aided the cause. Perhaps his strongest characteristic was his power of 
self-denial that he might assist his children and relatives dependent upon him in the practical 
struggle of life. His memory retained its power to the end, and his greatest enjoyment arose 
from his ability to keep pace with the literature and progress of the times, and in retrospect over 
the wonderful strides of civilization during his lifetime. "

lips and life of a godly grandmother and mother. At an early age he was given 
practical lessons in farming upon his uncle's farm. When he was seventeen years 
old, he enlisted in Colonel (now General) Joseph Hawley's Regiment, the 7th Ct. 
Vols., just after the first defeat of the Union army at Bull Run on the 21st of

listment he was taken very ill and sent to the hospital at Annapolis. After a

discharged. He obtained a position as clerk m the city Post Office in Washington,

_j3o6. Deacon MafCUS CicerO" Humphrey, [1622] (Dea. Theophilus,^ Dca. Theophihis,^ 
Lieut. Samuel,^ Ensign Samuel,' Lieut. Samuel,^ Hfichael,' ) was born 15 Dec, 1808, in Canton, 
Ct. He married, in Sheldon, N. Y., 28 Dec, 1830, Sina Fitch Chipman, born in that town, 12 
Nov., 18 1 2, daughter of Lemuel and Laura (Mead) Chipman, of Sheldon, N. Y., formerly of 
Pawlet and Manchester, Vt. He died in Lake City, Minn., 24 April, 1884, ne. 75 years. 
We add the following from a Lake City newspaper : — 

"When the word was passed from lip to lip on last Saturday morning that Deacon 
Humphrey was dead, the tidings seemed to cast a decided gloom over our little city, in which 
he was held in universal estimation. The funeral, at his late residence on Garden Street, was 
very numerously attended by all classes, who united to pay the last sad tribute of respect to the 
memory of a blameless citizen and consistent Christian, whose virtues will long be held in 
affectionate remembrance. The services were conducted by Rev. J. W. Horner, assisted by Rev. 
J. W. Ray, pastor of the Congregational church of this city, of which the deceased had been an 
officer during most of the time he has resided here. At the close of the exercises the procession, 
under conduct of Major Van Vliet, wended its w^ay to the silent city of the dead, where all that 
is mortal of our old neighbor and friend lies wrapped in the quiet of dreamless repose. 

"From Connecticut, Mr. Humphrey removed with his parents, in 1818, to Sheldon, 
Wyoming Co., N. Y.. then a part of Genesee Co., and there he remained, pursuing his avocation 
as a tanner and currier, with his oldest brother, Mr. Lester H. Humphrey, until he was about 
thirty-five years of age, when they dissolved partnership, and he ceased working at his trade. He 
removed to the town of Java, in the same county, where he was engaged in farming until he 
came to Lake City, in the spring of 1868. After his removal here he was not actively engaged 
in business, save as a Director of the First National Bank of this city, which position he held 
from 1876 to a few weeks before his death, when his failing powers compelled him to retire 
from the Board. 

"Deacon Humphrey was deeply interested in the morals of the city and in the religious 
and secular education of its youth. He was a strong advocate of temperance reform and took 
his seat as one of the city fathers upon the no-license issue; was for several years a live member 
of the city Board of Education, and rendered valuable service to his fellow-citizens in that capacity. 
For thirty-five years before coming to Lake City, he had been a consistent and earnest member 
of the Congregational church, and for thirty-six years prior to his death, had held the office of 
deacon in connection therewith. He remained in the enjoyment of robust health until August, 
1 88 1, when he was attacked with severe hemorrhage of the lungs. From this he speedily recovered, 
and seemed to have fully regained his health; but, in November, 1882, other symptoms of disease 
manifested themselves, and from that time until his death he remained an invalid." 

Mrs. Humphrey resides (1884) in Lake City, Minnesota.

Snow, b. 19 Mch., 1817, Mill Creek, Hamilton Co., Ohio, nine miles from Cincinnati. Her 
father was Sheriff of Hamilton County for three years. In the spring of 1839, Dea. Humphrey 
and his wife removed to Iowa Territory, where they lived until the spring of 1852, when they 
emigrated to Oregon, going thither across the plains with an ox-team, taking provisions for them- 
selves and five children, for the journey of 2,200 miles. Forty miles west of Omaha, Nebraska, 
thev were attacked l)y Indians, who demanded a" cow as the condition on which they would allow 
them to pass. Ten miles farther on this was repealed. The company then called a meeting, at 


which the captain was deposed on account of cowardice, and 'Sh. Humphrey elected in his stead. 
Nothing more of importance occurred on their journey, except that their cattle were all poisoned 
with alkali, and they were compelled to stop a few days until the animals recruited. They arriveil 
in Clackamas County, August 27th, 1852, and, October 3d, settled on a donation land claim* 
of three hundred and sixteen and one-half acres, two and a half miles west of Pordand, Oregon, 
where he now resides (1884). He has been for several years a deacon of the Congregational 
church at Mt. Zion, Oregon. His first wife died at their home near Portland, 23 Jan., 1859, 
se. 41 years. He married (2) at Machias, Cattaraugus Co., N. Y., 9 Feb., 1S65, Lemira Mercer 
(dau of Josephf and Phebe Mercer) Andrews, of Sheldon, N. Y, b. 30 Aug., 1823, Attica, 
Genesee Co, N. Y 

In his pioneer life Dea. Humphrey has had some thrilling adventures with wild animals. 
In the winter of 1848, in Jefferson County, Iowa, while riding horseback, he saw a wolf coming 
towards him, which was being chased by a man and dogs. Perceiving that it might escape he 
sprang from his horse, seized the wolf by the tail, swung it against a fence, and then held it by 
the neck until the dogs came up. In 1864, in Washington Territory, ten miles back of Vancouver, 
he treed a bear In 1867, while he and his wife were riding in a sleigh, they saw a large panther 
springing through the snow, whose bounds I^Ir. Humphrey found by measurement to be from 
twenty-four to twentv-seven feet in length.

on, April 12th, 1861. For nearly twenty years he has occupied different positions 
on the leading newspaper of Pordand, The Daily Oregonian. In 1884, he accepted 
an offer to take charge of a newspaper in Oysterville, Washington Territory, 
where he now resides. 

He has an interest in an orchard of forty acres, situated at Yaquina Bay, 
Benton Co., Oregon, which is considered quite valuable. In it are about eight

3342. Nelson Isaac' Humphrey, [163S] (Dca. TheophUus,'' Dea. TheophUusi Lieut. 

Samuel,^ Ensign Siuniicl,^' Lieut. Samuel,'' Michael,') was born 5 Mch., 1821, at Sheldon, Wyoming 
Co., N. y. He married (i) in that town, 17 Feb., 1842, Ellen M. (dau. of Col. James* and 
Jennette Fox) Case, of Sheldon, N. Y., born there, in March, 1821; died at Java Village, N. Y., 
in May, 1849, ae. 28 years. He married (2) at Strykersville, Wyoming Co., N. Y., 16 Apr., 1851, 
Emily Malvina (dau. of Harry S. and Ermina B.) Turner, of Strykersville, bom there, 22 July, 
1829. Her parents reside (1884)* at Viola, Richland Co., Wis. 

The boyhood of Nelson I. Humphrey was spent in attending school during the winters, 
and in working in the harness shop and tannery and on the farm the rest of the year. Losing 
his mother when he was fifteen years old, and his father retiring from active business, he was 
early thrown upon his own resources. At the age of seventeen he commenced peddling pictures, 
or prints, as they were then called, and continued to follow this occupation for about three years. 
When he was twenty-one he settled in Java Village, Wyoming Co., N. Y., and engaged in the 
saddle and harness trade, to which, in a short time, he added a general assortment of merchandise. 
In the spring of 1861, he removed to Leroy, McLean Co., 111., and settled on a small farm one 
mile from the town. He there successfully continued his former avocation for a number of years. 
In 1867, he sold out to his son, Nelson G. Humphrey, and removed to the city, where he opened 
a grocery store. Two years later, this son became his partner, and the firm of Humphrey & Son 
was widely and favorably known, until 1881, when the senior member sold his interest to his 
third son, Julius Wolcott. In 1882, he went to California and Oregon to visit his brother, 
Dea. Homan M. Humphre_v, and other relatives. 

He is thoroughly respected in the community in which he lives. Those who know him in 
business relations testify to his honor and fair dealing.s. As a citizen he is both in principle and 
practice on the side of sobriety, order and morality, and public virtue with him is also private 
virtue. To this he adds as a neighbor and in his home the grace of a kindly and generous heart.

Captain Loin H. Humphrey has lived eighty-six years in Canton, Ct., and, since his marriage 
in 1819, on the farm which he now occupies (1884). During this period of sixty-five years there 
has been no death in the house. In 1828, he joined the Congregational church in Canton Center, 
of which he has since been a consistent member. He has been a retiring man, distrustful of his 
own powers and never seeking office. Yet he has never shrunk from the discharge of such official 
duties as have been assigned him. In 1830, he was chosen Captain of Company 9, in the 17th 
Reg. Ct. Infantry, which position he held for three years, and then resigned. In 1835, he was 
appointed, by the Connecticut Legislature, a Justice of the Peace for his native town, and filled 
that office several years. He has also served as Selectman, and, in 1856, represented his town in 
the lower House of the State Legislature. He has thus done his part in sustaining the welfare 
of the community in which he has lived, and has given freely of his time, influence, and money 
in support of school, church, and the cause of benevolence in general. And during all these 
years he has retained the confidence and respect of -his fellow-citizens as a Christian gentleman, 
as a kind and obliging neighbor, and as an upright, worthy man. P. O. address (1884)

Col. Humphrey served in the war for the Union, enUsting in the 85th Reg. Ohio Vols.; 
was engaged in the defence of Frankfort and Lexington, Ky., and in the pursuit of the notorious 
guerilla, John Morgan, then in the neighborhood of Frankfort. While at the head of a scouting 
party he, unattended, approached the residence of the well-known rebel, Scott, who had just been 
entertaining a dozen of Morgan's men, and by personating a confederate and shouting "Friend 
Scott, the Yanks are upon us,'' decoyed him from the house. He came forward with his gun, 
saying, "We are all right; Morgan's men are not two miles away. They have just been here, 
and I will go with you at once to their camp." Col. Humphrey immediately responded, "You 
are my prisoner, lay down that gun," at the same time leveling his old Belgian rifle at him. 
Scott exclaimed "Don't shoot," and at once surrendered. At a signal from Col. Humphrey his 
men, who were lying on the ground some twenty rods away, came forward at a double-quick and 
marched Scott into the Union camp. From thence he was forwarded to Camp Chase, Ohio, as 
a prisoner of war.

clock and watch work. In the month of March, 1833. at the age of sixteen, in company with 
J. Monroe Taylor, he left the paternal abode to seek his fortune among strangers. He adopted 
the profession of school-teaching for a few years; but, in 1841, commenced selling goods for 
J. Monroe Taylor in Delphi, N. Y., where he continued three years, the last year having charge 
of the store and doing a large country trade; was a merchant in Phoenix, Oswego Co., N. Y., 
from the spring of 1S49 to 1852. In 1854, '55 and '56, was contractor to enlarge four sections

Traveler for J. Monroe Taylor, for whom he has designed and superintended the building of five 
factories, at different times, for the manufacture of Gold Medal Saleratus, Bicarbonate of Soda, 
Cream Yeast Baking Powder, and other chemicals. He is the inventor of special, valuable pro- 
cesses in the manufacture of these goods, which render them so justly popular throughout 
this country. He has never used ardent spirits or tobacco in any form, and, with the co-oper- 
ation of his good wife, has never found it necessary to house a camphor bottle during thirty-six 
years of married life.

3486. i. Humphrey Leverrier,' b. 28 Nov. 18S1, Rose Valley, N. Y. 

• At the age of eighteen he invented a method of finding the time of night, very nearly, without the aid of an instrument, by taking the 
position of the Little Dipper, composed of seven stars in the constellation Ursa Minor. The pole-star named Polaris represents the center 
of the dial, and the farthermost star in the Dipper the pointer. This pointer makes the circuit of this dial once in twenty-four hours, and 
also an additional circuit from east to west once in a year, caused by the earth's annual revolution around the sun. This pointer will be 
found at four quarterly periods during each year as follows: At the winter solstice, December 21st, vertically beneath the star Polaris about 
nine o'clock P. M.; at the spring equinox, March 21st, horizontally east of Polaris about nme o'clock P. M.: at the summer solstice, 
June 22d, vertically above Polaris about nine o'clock P. M.: at the autumnal equinox, September 21st, horizontally west of Polaris at nine 
o'clock P. M. For example ; Suppose the position of the pointer on the night of July 29th was found to be above and 25 degrees west 

of Polaris, what time of night would it be ? If 360 degrees 24 hours, 25 degrees = i hour and 40 minutes t 9 hours == 10 o'clock 

and 40 minutes, which would be the time of night if the position of the pointer had been taken on the 22d of June instead of the jgth 
of July. We therefore deduct ior the time elapsed since the last quarterly period, June 22d, two hours for each month and four minutes 
for each day. because of the earth's annual circuit around the sun, or, to be more e.xaci. deduct for each day elapsed since the last 
quarterly period 3 and 69-73 minutes, thus: From June 22d to July 29th is 37 days x 3 and 69-73 == u6 minutes, or 2 hours and 26 minutes, 
which being subtracted from 10 o'clock and 40 minutes = 8 o'clock and 14 minutes, as the time of night July 29th. Mr. Humphrey 
has several times been called up in the night to test the accuracy of his method, and has never varied more than five to fifteen mmutes 
from the true time. 

He is a firm believer in an open polar sea, a mild climate in the interior of our earth, and in the theory of concentric spheres, 
and that all spheres are formed by the law of our great Architect from concentric rings thrown oft' from the central mass of mailer 
(from which every solar system has been formed) while in a molten, plastic and gaseous state, and rapidly revolving upon their axes, 
thereby exerting a centrifugal force sufiiciently strong in opposition to the law of gravity to prevent condensation to the extent of leavmg 
a hollow center, as in the case of Saturn and its rings. He also believes that the location of several magnetic poles from sixty-eight to 
eighty degrees north prove a vacancy of matter at what we call the pole; that the dipping of the pole-star towards the south from : 
vertical point overhead, while little more than eighty-three degrees north, indicates an cyelet-slfcped 01 
planet, and that explorers in that region were actually rounding over towards the axis of the earth mor< 
the case if the earth was only flattened at the pole.

"Capt. Curtis C. Humphrey was a man of fine personal appearance, tall and well-pro- 
portioned — a superb specimen of the physical characteristics of the Humphrey family. His mental 
and moral characteristics were in harmony with his physical. Quick in perception, clear in 
understanding, sound in judgment, independent in thought, extremely sensitive of right, energetic, 
fearless and decisive in action, sympathetic and large-hearted, he possessed the strong character 
which fitted him to be a leader among men. Hence it \vas expected of him that he would be 
first and foremost in whatever was calculated to promote the interests of society, and he always was. 

'Recognizing the advantages of the- Catskill Mountain region for sheep husbandry, he 
engaged in it on an extensive scale, and had one of the largest and finest flocks of sheep in the 
State. He at one time owned about seven hundred acres of land; and in the cultivation of the 
soil made use of improved methods, and introduced labor-saving implements. 

"In educational and religious interests he took an active part, and gave with a liberal 
hand for their support. Of an unassuming and retiring disposition, he never sought public office, 
but when oflSce was imposed upon him, his sense of duty was too just to allow him to refuse 
its responsibilities. As Justice of the Peace, as Supervisor of his native town, and as Captain of 
a Militia company, he discharged his official trusts w'ith such scrupulous fidelity as to meet with 
unqualified approval. 

"When smitten down in the full strength of his manhood and the height of his usefulness, 
it was felt that a vacancy had been made — a loss sustained — that could not be filled. He is still 
often s])()kcn of — anil iiis 'memory shall never perish.' 


"His wife, only daughter of William Benedict, M. D., was eminently fitted to be the help- 
meet of such a man, and is equally worthy of mention; for, if he was manly, she was womanly. 
Possessed of all those graces of mind and heart that adorn the female character, she knew her 
sphere, and how to fill it — knew her power, and how to wield it. She ruled without seeming to 
rule. The circle in which she moved was a charmed one, and she was the charm. Her home 
was a most attractive spot, not only to those who called it their own, but also to all that knew 
it throuL;h the hospitable welcome alwavs awaiting the visitor. She survived her husband about 
twenty-live years, dying November loth, 1SS4, leaving a host of friends, and not an enemy."*

one year, under his uncle, Rev. Dr. Hector Humphreys. In 1838 he was clerk in the house of 
William G. Harrison, in Baltimore; from 1839 to 1844 he was clerk in the house of the late 
Gov. E. D. Morgan, of New York ; he then removed to St. Louis to enter into the wholesale 
grocery and commission business with George W. Thatcher, constituting the firm of Humphreys 
& Thatcher, in which business he achieved a wide reputation as an enterprising and honorable 
merchant. He continued to reside at St. Louis till December, 1853, then returned to New York 
and joined the firm of E. D. Morgan & Co., Jan. i, 1854, which firm has continued up to this 
date, 1885. This house was founded in 1837, and has been one of the leading firms in New 
York since that period. It has been, for the, most of the time, largely engaged in the sugar, 
coffee and tea trade, having had relations in its business with all parts of the world where these 
articles are produced. They have also at times been largely engaged in financial negotiations. He 
has resided at Bergen Point, New Jersey, his present home, since 1856. 

Mr. Humphreys was one of the original promoters of the Ohio and Mississippi R. R. in 
Illinois, in 1851, and also of the Iron Mountain R. R. in Missouri, in 1852. After his removal 
to New York, his firm was the agent for the sale of the bonds of the State of Missouri, issued 
to its roads, and was in other ways interested in the roads of that State. In 1871 he was one 
of the active parties in the reorganization of the North Missouri Road into the St. Louis, Kansas 
City and Northern Railway Co. But perhaps the most noteworthy labor of Mr. Solon Humphreys' 
very busy and active life, has been his connection with the Wabash System of railwa3^s . In 1866 
he, in conjunction with Azariah Boody and others, organized the Toledo, Wabash and Western 
Railroad, extending from Lake Erie to the Mississippi river, by the consolidation of six_ original 
companies, in Ohio, Indiana and Illinois, comprising some 600 miles, and being one of the first 
consolidations of railroads in different States in this country. Subsequentl_y, after having been dis- 
connected with the company for several years, he was one of the most active members of the 
parties to the foreclosure and reorganization of this property, in 1877, into the Wabash Railway 
Company; and two years later its consolidation with the St. Louis, Kansas City and Northern 
Railway Co., extending west of the Mississippi river to Kansas City and Omaha, into the Wabash, 
St. Louis and Pacific Railway Co., now known as the Wabash System, comprising some 3,500 
miles of railway, in seven of the United States, and with which he has been connected since 
that time, as President in 1880-2, subsequently as Chairman of its Executive Committee, and since 
May, 1884, as one of its Receivers in the U. S. Court. He was one of the original promoters 
of the ' ' great bridge " over the Missouri River at St. Louis, which was constructed at a cost of 
over twelve million dollars, and was Receiver of the Bridge Company in 1877-9. He was Presi- 
dent of the reorganized company of 1879-81. He was one of the principle promoters of the 
"Pittsburgh and Western Railroad" in 1881, and was its_ Vice-president in 1882-4. He was 
Vice-president of the Chamber of Commerce, in New York, in 1873, ^^d has been its Treasurer 
from 1878 to the present time. 

Mr. Humphreys was largely instrumental in the organization of Trinity Protestant Episcopal 
Church, Bergen Point, N. J., in 1859, and has been Warden since its organization. Its church 
edifice at Bergen Point, its grounds and rectory, are amongst the most beautiful in the State of 
New Jersey. In private life, in all its diversified, religious, social and business relations, Mr. 
Humphreys occupies a most conspicuous position, and is only spoken of in terms of the most 
exalted estimation and regard, illustrating, as hi? father and grand-father and remote ancestors 
before him, the best traits of the family character.

brother, Solon Humphreys, in the wholesale grocery business. He afterwards became President of 
the Mississippi Glass Co., in w'hich office he continued until his death, Aug. 20, 1875, ee. 47 years. 

Mr. Humphreys was a man of great natural ingenuity, and when a boy, together with his 
brother, and with no tools but pocket-knives and a hatchet, they constructed a bass viol and a 
violin, which are still preserved in the family as curiosities. During his lifetime he evinced a great 
love of music and remarkable power as a musician. He had a very kind and gentle disposition, 
being always thoughtful of those in his employ, as well as of those in need; and he was justly 
beloved by all who knew him. In business life his integrity and courtesy were marked features 
of his character. His widow and children reside (18S5) at No. 3412 Lucas Avenue, St. Louis.

4093. Dr. George Hoppin' Humphreys, [2601] (May,^ Hon. Reuben,^ Esq. Oliver,*

Julie (dau. of ]\Iajor-Gen. James* and ) Barnes, of Springfield, INIass. 

At an early age he went with the family to Europe, at first to England and afterwards to 
Germany, and various points of interest on the Continent, where he received his preliminary edu- 
cation, returning in his seventeenth year to Philadelphia. He was there for several years, engaged 
in the study of his profession, as private pupil of the celebrated Dr. Mutter, of the Jefferson 
Medical College. He spent also much of his time abroad in Paris and Germany, prosecuting his 
studies; and having a competence, devoted himself to such branches of inquiry as suited his tastes. 

When the war for the Union broke out, in 1861, he became the surgeon of the celebrated 
regiment of Hawkins' Zouaves, and with them early went to the front; and it is recorded ©f him 
that in a very few weeks he so signalized his fitness for his position as to have became the best 
known and most trusted officer of the regiment. His fertility of resources and prompt yet engaging 

nes, U. S. A., of Springfield, M.iss., .t West Point officer, retired Irom the army, but served through 











manners and readiness of access, made him the confident of all, and won for him universal praise 
and admiration. 

Dr. Humphreys, however, is best known both in England and in this country as the 
translator of Niemeyer, and the profession in both hemispheres are loud in their acknowledg- 
ments to him for having presented this new standard medical authority in an English dress, and 
for having enriched it with his extensive annotations and additions. The force, clearness and 
style with which the author's ofttimes obscure sentences has been rendered, is worthy of note, and 
has received high praise from professional critics. He is now engaged in private practice in New 
York Cit}', and is also one of the staff of consulting physicians of the Bellvue Medical Hospital, 
and holds other positions of professional preferment. Res. (1885) 23 E. 47th St., New York Cit\-.*

FAMILY 387. 

4132. Hon. George' Humphreys, [2642J (Br. Eras/us,^ Capt. Asher,^ Esq. Oliver,* 
Jonal/ian,i Lieut. Samuel,- Michael^) was born 15 Mch., 1814, in Marcellus, Onondaga Co., N. Y. 
He removed with the family to Auburn, N. Y., in October, 1823, received his education at the 
Auburn Academy, under the tuition of Noble D. Strong and Rev. John C. Rudd, D. D. ; entered 
Amherst College under the presidency of Rev. Heman Humphrey, D. D. , in 1833, '34 and '35. 
His health failing, he returned home, and subsequently entered the office of Governor and after- 
wards Senator and Secretary William H. Seward. He remained with Governor Seward through 
all the labors and somewhat exciting scenes of the Governor's Agency of the Holland Land Com- 
pan3' at Mayville and Westfield, Chautauqua Co., and until his admission to the bar 13 July, 
183S. He was married by the Rev. IMr. Putnam, in Sheldon, Genesee (now Wyoming) Co., 
N. Y., 28 May, 1840 [see Fam. 90, S-.], to Lucia Williams, youngest dau. of Godfrey and 
Deborah (Lobdel) Grosvenor. She was born at Minot, Cumberland Co., Me., 28 June, 1S21; 
died at Buffalo, N. Y., 7 Mch., 1877, se. 55 years. 

He settled as a lawyer in Cato, Cayuga Co., in 1840. He was elected first Judge of 
Cayuga County in 1S51, and reelected in 1853 and in 1S59, making his twelve years of uninter- 
rupted service on the bench. He removed to Auburn in 1852, and was IMayor of the city there 
three successive terms, in 1861, '62 and '63. 

When he settled in his profession as a lawyer, in Cato, Cayuga Co., he was the only 
lawyer on the north side of the Seneca River in the County, and the people were emerging from 
the rudeness of their woods and stumps to the more cultivated form and style of advanced and 
refined rural life. Judge Humphreys entered into all the labors, sports and improvements of their 
life with a keenness and relish born of ancestral traits. He was the friend of everybody, the 
genial, kind-hearted, patient advisor and counsellor of all, and when nominated as first Judge of 
the County, he \vas elected by a larger majority than any other man, before or since, ever received 
in the County. On the bench he was patient, reserved, dignified and painstaking to a fault; the 
friend of the oppressed, and yet severe enough to persistent evil-doers, whether of high or low 
degree. His decisions were rarely called in question. One very remarkable case came before 
him, which will bear repetition. A convict in the Auburn State Prison, Francis S. Edemoine, 
alias John y\. Coss, who had been convicted of forgery and allowed many privileges, obtained 
from Gov. Horatio Seymour, a pardon through fraud. He was a fine penman, and was put to 
keeping t"lie account of one of the contractors, and when any of the officers of the prison or 
contractors wished their cards written, they gave him their signatures, and he would write them 
in fine style. In this way he obtained the signature of the keeper, Mr. Pomeroy, the warden, 

the doctor, Alanson Briggs, the contractor, the chaplain, and indeed <ill of the officials connected 
with the prison. Armed with these, he drew up a petition in well worded terms, stating that he 
was a most exemplar)' man, deeply penitent and reformed, and moreover in poor health, suffering 
from consumption and likely to- live but a little time, and that it would be an act of well-merited 
executive clemency to grant him a pardon. Added to this was a special letter from Dr. Briggs, 
the physician, and another from the chaplain, setting forth the state of his health as above (all a- 
lie), and his very comforting spiritual condition. These petitions he contrived to smuggle out of 
the prison, and into the hands of a confederate, by whom they were duly presented to the 
Governor at Albany. Such overwhelming and unanimous petitions in favor of a poor penitent, 
d^ing convict, could not for a day be delayed, and his pardon was promptly issued. The keeper 
received the pardon in due course of mail, with much surprise, and was still more surprised that 
the convict affected none at all, and blandly informed him that he expected the pardon, as he 
had power and influence at work for him outside, and taking it as a matter of course, was duly 
clothed and discharged with his pardon in his pocket. 

Some daj'S after, the keeper, Charles Pomeroy, called on the Governor in Albany, and in 
the course of conversation casually asked what had induced the Governor to pardon Edemoine. 
' ' VVh}-, " replied the Governor, ' ' I remember he had one of the most touching, strong and 
unanimously signed petitions I ever received, and I think your name headed it. You mean the 
man in the hospital, who is dying of consumption.?" "Nonsense," said Pomeroy, "he is no 
consumptive, but the fattest, burliest knave in the whole prison." "Well," said the Governor, 
"I will look it up, and I think your name headed the petition." The next day Governor Seymour 
handed to Pomeroy the petition, and with serene triumph said: "It is as I told you, your name 
stands at the head of the list." Pomeroy looked over the petition in amazement. "That," he 
said, "is my signature as well or better than I could have written it, but I'll swear I never 

wrote it, and I'll be if the whole thing is not a forgery from beginning to end, and now 

that I think it over 1 know the secret of Edemoine's getting the signatures." 

It was ascertained that the forger was in Albany having a good time with his pardon in 
his pocket. Two detectives were put upon his track, who hired a woman, with whom the culprit 
was living, to persuade him to leave his pardon in her bureau drawer, whence it was conveyed 
to the officers, who laid in wait, and when he appeared arrested and ironed him. "By what 
authority do you arrest me," said Edemoin. "We arrest you as an escaped convict," they replied. 
"I am not a convict," he said, "I was pardoned by the Governor." "Where is }our pardon .''" 
"You may know better than I do, but I am no convict," were his words. They put him on the 
train and took him back to the prison. When there he demanded to see a lawyer, in answer to 
which they put on his convict clothes and set him again to work. James R. Cox, Esq., of 
Auburn, hearing of the case, took out a writ of habeas corpus and, associated with Clarence A. 
Seward, defended the man, and the case was brought before Judge Humphreys for adjudication.* 

* In the course of the trial it became known that several of the Governors had been imposed upon and had issued pardons to 
convicts by mistake or fraud. An instance occurring under Gov. Seward's administration is worth repeating. In one of the counties on 
the Mohawk, a couple of emigrants, Swedish or Dutch, had moved in— simple, ignorant people— and a gang of burglars in their neigh- 
borhood had broken open a store and robbed it, among other things, of a bolt of cloth. This cloth they brought to the house of these 
people, by whom it was secreted and kept from its owners. In due lime they were detected, tried and sent to prison lor receiving 
stolen goods. No great time had elapsed after their incarceration before the prison authorities learned that they might soon e.vpect an 
addition to their number quite out of the regular way of the Courts. In this dilemma they appealed to the Governor, as they had no 
focilities lor a lying-in asylum. The Governor at once saw the necessity of providing for the woman, and directed the clerk to make 
out a pardon. The clerk, cither failing to comprehend the situation, or through inability to distinguish the sex of the foreign names, 
filled in the name of the husband instead of that of the wile, and the pardon was duly signed by the Governor and forwarded to the 
prison. The keeper thought it a little singtdar, but concluded that the Governor had thought best to let the husband go free first in 
order to provide a for his wife, .an* would soon follow with a pardon for her, and so sent the man oflT. They waited a few days 
for the Governor's pardon for the woman, but none came until the crisis grew imminent, when they wrote to the Governor for the meaning 
of the delay and their urgent demand for relief when the denoumcnt occurred. Of course the Governor at once issued the pardon for the 
woman, which he had mtended to have done at the first. But he did nut publish his mistake by seeking again 
whom he had set free in error. 


He was, says Cox, one of the most adroit scoundrels ever heard of, futile of expedients, and 
without moral sense, and so always in trouble. The case is reported in one of the earlier volumes 
of Howard's Practice Reports, about 1855. Seward kept the run of him for quite a time, and 
the last report was a letter from Edemoin dated at Moyamensing prison, Philadelphia, Pa. 

The case excited much interest, not only in legal circles, but among the people generally. 
The keeper of the prison, the Governor, and the State Attorney-General felt themselves compro- 
mised, and the latter appeared- at the trial on behalf of the State. All the facts as heretofore 
shown were clearly elicited, and the Attorney-General maintained that the previous fraud had vitiated 
the pardon, and that the culprit had of right been returned to prison as an escaped convict, etc. 

The Judge took several days to consider the subject, and decided that the issue of a pardon 
by the Executive was such a judicial act as did not admit of traverse. That whether well or ill- 
advised, the issue of a pardon w-as an act of Executive clemency, and was such an exercise of 
the supreme power as did not admit of review or traverse, and however underserved in its affect, 
and however reluctant he might feel in its issue or consequences, he had no power to annul it, 
and he felt himself obliged to confirm it by discharging the prisoner. The culprit, however, did 
not get off, but was immediately taken on a w-rit by a sheriff of another county to answer for a 
crime therein committed, and after trial and conviction was again sent back to his old quarters at 
Auburn prison. The Judge's decision was never disturbed, though threatened by the Attorney-General. 

In 1870 the interest of a large landed estate in Buffalo left to Mrs. Humphreys and her 
two brothers by the Grosvenor estate, required his removal to Buffalo, and required his entire 
attention to the close of his life, and doubtless in its many vexatious delays and embarrassments 
hastened his decline. In 1885 he moved to Cambridge, Mass., to be near his son Llewellyn, at 
Harvartl, and to be with his daughter, Mrs. Kendall, "at which place he died. 

Judge Humphreys has been all his life a whig and republican, but at the close of the war 
for the Union the cause of the administration did not meet his approval. He believed that the 
north and south should at once strike hands and seek to obliterate the moral and material 
wounds of the war. That our taxes should at once be reduced, the war debt funded, and that 
twenty years should be given to our recuperation, north and south, before the people should be 
called upon by taxation to pay the war debt. That the southern States should be rehabilitated 
in the Union and our federal expenses reduced to the minimum; and in consonance with these 
views he was a delegate and attended the noted "love feast" or Union Convention held at Phila- 
delphia after the close of the war. These views did not meet those of the party, and he was , 
induced to offer his name as the candidate of the Democratic party as Congressional Representative 
of his district. The Judge made no special effort and was defeated, though polling the largest 
democratic vote ever received by any candidate of that party in his county. 

Judge Humphreys was a most estimable man. In all the relations of life he might almost 
be said to have been a model man. Modest and reserved, high-minded, considerate of the rights, 
the wants and needs of others, kind-hearted and benevolent to a fault, he had no enemies, but 
all who knew him were his friends, and he was never so happy as when engaged in some 
unselfish work for the public, the poor, the distressed, or some friend. There was not a coarse 
fibre in his nature, nor a coarse act or word in his life. His later days were overshadowed by 
pecuniary cares and embarrassments brought about by the recklessness of others, and perhaps by 
his business mistakes, so that his and his wife's last days were by no means their best days; but 
no one ever called in question his integrity, his virtue or sterling worth of character.

He removed with his father's family to Auburn, N. Y., in 1823. His youth was s'jMwt-in-- 
his father's office, and at the district and in private schools, and at the Auburn Academy, under 
the tuition of Josiah Underbill, a Quaker teacher, who probably did more to mould his character 
than any other agency. From the age of fourteen to sixteen he was clerking in a store, and then 
went south with his brother Julius and uncle Truman, in the clock business, his father having an 
idea that every boy should early push out and make his way in the world. Returning after a 
three years' experience, he managed a farm which his father had purchased. He again went 
south, and after a year returned to find his father-in-law's affairs in confusion, and to save the 


Alvah Jefferson [8] (Capt. Enoch, Aaron) was born at AUord, Berkshire Co., Mass. He married 4 Sept., 1816, Maria Polly 
(dau. of Capt. Isaac) Tuttle, of Alford, b. 6 Muh., 1799; died at Ludlowville, N. Y., 17 May, 1876, s. 83 years. He died 6 Mch., 1884. 

After living some six years at Alford, they removed to the town of Brutus, near .iuburn, Cayuga Co., N. Y., from whence, after 
four years' residence, they removed to the homestead on the hill north of Ludlowville, Tompkins Co., N. Y., where they purchased the 
farm until then owned and occupied by Jonah Tooker, Esq., at which place they lived in family state for a period of fifty years, and 
where three of their six children were born to them. 

Bringing with them, from Massachusetts, a fair start in life, and those sterling, puritanic habits of economy and integrity, and a 
hearty faith in the covenant of works, they were prospered. Wealth and abundance flowed m upon them, but only to increase their 
persistent energy and patient industry. Their house became the resting place and temporary home of nearly two generations of Methodist 
and other Clergymen, who always found a generous welcome, a bounteous table, and a hearty furtherance in every earnest evangelical 
or religious work. Mother Sperry's life was an exemplification of her faith. From early dawn until long after all other lights in the 
neighborhood were out, and all households asleep, she was cheerful and busy in her round of household duties. Never unemployed, 
never triflingly employed, was her practice if not her life-long motto. 

In her early days she was a remarkably fine singer, possessing not only a good but well-trained voice, and all through life, up to 
a late period, an exceptionably good one. Sacred music, usually led by the father, and united in by every member of the family, was 
the refrain of daily life, as it was the joy of every recreation. At the Church, Prayer and Social Meetings, for more than sixty years 
Father Sperry was the chorister or leader, and Mother Sperry his always able and efficient assistant. 

In the days of anti-slavery, when the slave and his cause had few friends, and when it cost something to be known as such, the 
"House on the Hill" and the "Home of the Sperrys' " were known far and wide as the abode of staunch friends and firm supporters of 
that maligned cause, and none were more outspoken in their denunciation of the evil, or more earnest and liberal in efforts for its 
suppression than Mrs. Sperry. *^ 

Every branch of Church work felt the influence of her contributions and zeal. Her hand was ever ready, her purse was ever open, 
and whoever else might fail or falter, she could always be counted upon as a liberal contributor and an earnest helper. 

Asa mother and manager of her household ^he had few equals, and she brought to her aid a well-stored mmd and rare practical 
good sense. Although not given to warm or frequent manifestations of afliection, yet her children were her idols, and for them no toil 
was too long, no sacrifice too great. Her economy and neatness were remarkable. Nothing was wasted— nothing mislaid or lost; and 
often, long years after an article or garment had been used and forgotten by others, if wanted, it was produced front some secure resting 
place as fresh and as useful as ever. 

Her memory of names, dates and circumstances was wonderful. As from intuition and without effort, the names, dates, births, 
marriages and deaths of her relations, ancestors, connections, friends, or even casual acquaintances, could be given on the instant and in 
the course of ordinary conversation— a gift which she had inherited from her mother, and which has descended to some of her d.-iughters 
and grand-daughters. 

She had always and almost stoical contempt for physical pain or suffering, and all through lite, and even during the terribly severe 
agony of her last illness, from one of the most painlul diseases known, she was never heard to murmur or complain. 

That she was not perfect is but to acknowledge the frailty and imperfection of our common humanity. But that she m.-uiifesled, 
through a long and useful life, those qualities of mind and heart which make life a success and religion a service, is the conviction of all 
who knew her, and the cherished memory of those to whom she was most near and dear.

wreck of his property went with him to Chillicothe, Ohio, where he remained some three years 
engaged in teaching, and where he entered the ministry of the M. E. Church. His wife dying at 
Chillicothe, he returned to Auburn in 1S41, bringing his infant son with him. His first intinerant 
year in the ministry was at Worthington, Ohio, his second at Cayuga, N. Y,., his third at Cort- 
landville, N. Y., his fourth at Cayuga, N. Y., and his fifth at New Hartford, N. Y. He was 
ordained as Deacon at Wilksburg in 1843, and as Elder at Utica, N. Y., in 1845; located as a 
minister in 1846. He is credited with having been a ready speaker of engaging manner and 
address, alwa3-s popular with the people, and the work of the church always prospering in his 
hands. Yet the trammels of the itinerancy were irksome, the pay was meagre and the outlook 
forbidding. His entire five years' work in the ministry did not return him, in all, $500 in money, 
and his living was eked out by his medical practice ainong the people. Such practice was 
constantly exciting the comments and evil criticism of his ministeral brethren. His itinerant 
experience in practice and preaching was often singular, and many interesting details could be 
given did space permit. 

In 1S44 he removed to Utica, N. Y., and united with his father, Dr. Erastus Humphreys, 
in the practice of medicine. At Utica he devoted himself afresh to the study of medicine, under 
the direction of his father. Since 1S40 he had been pushing his investigations in the then new 
system of Homeopathy; to this end, first learning the French and then the German language. At 
that period there was almost literally nothing in the English language on the subject. His knowl- 
edge of the subject in those languages gave him great advantages, and his practice of nine years 
at Utica made him literally master of the situation, having at its close the most extensive and 
lucrative practice in the city. The winters of 1848, '49 and '50 were passed in Philadelphia, at 
the Pennsylvania Homeopathic Medical College, and in very intimate relations with the renowned 
Dr. Constantine Hering, from whom he received that personal instruction, encouragement and 
direction which were in many ways of inestimable value to mm. He received his degree of 
Doctor of Medicine, and as Doctor of Homeopathic Medicine in 1850, from the college above 

At Utica his labors were characteristic, besides a large practice, he was constantly engaged 
dn literary and medical writing. He issued, in connection with his father, a series of " Tracts for 
the Times," elucidating the new doctrine of homeopathy. He wrote while there his "Cholera 
and its Homeopathic Treatment," and a monograph on Dysentery, and other small works. But 
perhaps his most important labor was the "Proving of the Apis INIelliffica, or poison of theHoney 
Bee." This work occupied his spare time and attention from 1848 to 1852. There was nothing 
tefore known of the Therapeutic value of this poison. He procured the living bees through his 
office-assistant, George Washburn, extracted the poison by putting them in a wide mouth bottle, 
shaking them until enraged, and then pouring alcohol over them, and so forming the mother 
tincture of the virus, and with this preparation, both in its original form and in dilutions, insti- 
tuted a series of experiments upon himself, his wik, students and partners in his office, and upon 
friends, for two years, and then, at a meeting of the Central New York Homeopathic Medical 
Society, gave an address upon the subject and the importance and mode of medical provings. 
He distributed the medicine to the physicians present, and subsequently gathered from them and 
from all sources, both the symptoms elicited and the cures made, and finally published the 
monograph in 1852, under the title of "Proving of the Apis Mellifiica, or poison of the Honey 
Eee." Dr. Hering afterwards enlarged the work by adding the recorded results of "Bee Stings," 
and published the whole as a most important addition to the " Americanische Artzneiprufengen." 

Dr. Humphreys' original proving, giving the profession one of its most valuable remedies 
for dropsies, diphtheria, angina, malignant scarlet fever, and varied forms of kidney diseases, 
ophthalmias, cerebral and pulmonary congestions, is perhaps the most important contribution 
made to the Homeopathic Materia Medica in America in the Homeopathic school, and is entirely 

"^ Mt092^l^£l€^J 9?I.^, 

due to the genius and labor of our subject. He also brought to the attention of the profession 
his preparation of "nux cum sale," as a valuable remedy in intermittents. He three years later 
proved, with the aiti of his class, at the Homeopathic Medical College at Philadelphia, the 
Plantago Major, thus adding another proved remedy to the Materia IMedica. He assisted in 
forming and was prominent in the Central New York Homeopathic Medical Societ}', and in 
transforming the same into the present New York State Homeopathic Medical Society. Later he 
was Chairman of the " Bureau for the Augmentation and Improvement of the Materia Medica,'' 
of the American Institute of Homeopathy, the highest compliment which could be paid him by 
his school of medicine. 

In 1S53, under advice of professional friends, he removed to New York, but had hardly 
settled there when he received a spontaneous call to the chair of "Homeopathic Institutes and 
Practice of Medicine " in his old college. This he accepted, making a brilliant record as a 
lecturer for three years, when he resigned, from complications growing out of his new discovery 
and practice of homeopathic combinations, termed by him Homeopathic Specifics. This step 
produced a rupture between him and the college, and his professional friends and associates. 
The question presented to Dr. Humphreys was, whether he would smother .the light which he 
believed he had received on this subject, or whether he should buffet the waves and strike out in 
a course which he thought he could see as full of benefit to the profession and the race. Painful 
as was the alternative, he chose the latter, and with true family grit gave to the winds his fears 
and launched out, trusting only that the light he had received would pilot him through, and that 
however bitter or long the struggle, he was in the pathway of duty. The result was for a long 
time doubtful, many of his professional friends and school of practice deserted him or could not 
understand him. He met with intrigue, rascality and fraud in his business associates, and not an 
over-S3™pathizing press, trade and public. But twenty-five years of persistent effort have changed 
all that. His old professional associates now see that he has done more for their cause than he 
could possibly have done as a simple teacher or practitioner. The business frauds that for so 
many years embittered his life and embarrassed his work have one by one gone down to the sleep 
that knows no waking, and our subject at the ripe age of seventy finds himself "at ease in his 
possessions" and successful in the work of his life, with the consciousness of having "stood in 
his lot," worked faithfully in the place appointed him, and of having in no small degree con- 
tributed to the welfare and happiness of our common humanity. 

His writings in connection with his business and profession have been extensive. His little 
INIanual has had a circulation of several million copies in the English, German, French, Spanish 
and Portuguese languages, and is yet being issued at the rate of a million a year. His Mentor 
is issued in the above languages and has a large circulation, as also his Veterinary Manual, and 
charts. The trade also finds in him an active, willing and efficient worker in all that pertains to 
its e.xtension, welfare and defense, and reports and communications on trade problems and legis- 
lation are frequent and well received. 

In the Church he has always been active. He organized the M. E. Church in West Utica, 
buying the edifice, making the first payment and securing the pastor. He was most efficient in 
building Trinity Church, at Asbury Park, and has rendered efficient service in placing the Church 
of the Heavenly Rest, New York Cit_v, upon its present satisfactory basis, and of which he has 
been warden for seven years. 

He has always been active in literary work, contributing to various periodicals and papers. 
His "Humphreys' Family" was commenced some si.xteen 3'ears ago, and though the mass of the 
details has been done by friends and paid assistants, the care, superversion and expense of the 
whole has devolved upon him. His poetic temperament, from a child, has found relief in occa- 
sional production of verses upon all subjects, from gay to grave. But he is far too modest to 
seek renown in that ficUl, ur even I., favur more than semi-occasi.>nall.v llie public with them. 


He has been for some years a constant contributor to Our Animal Friends, Mr. Henry Berg's 
paper, where his contributions in behalf of considerate kindness towards all animal nature are 
always welcome. His domestic, social and church relations have always been most happy. Res.

Bureau Co., Ill, 30 I\Ich., 1858, Elizabeth Ann, dau. of David and Elizabeth (Hankins) Fisher, 
of Virginia,, b. 11 Oct., 184.0, in Virginia. 

He enlisted at Sheffield, Bureau Co., 111., as a private in Company C ("Western Sharp- 
shooters"), 66th Regt. 111. Vol. Infantry, i Sept., 1862; took part in the battle of Corinth, Oct. 
3d and 4th, 1862, and was slightly wounded; and participated in nearly all the campaigns of the 
Army of the Tennessee until after the fall of Atlanta. He was detailed at headquarters i6th 
Army Corps, Major-General Grenville ]\I. Dodge commanding, and remained with General Dodge, 
as clerk, until he v%-as commissioned, 5 April, 1864, as First Lieutenant, and mustered in as 
Adjutant of the 5th U. S. Infantry Vols., Colonel Henry Maynadier commanding. Just before 
receiving his commission, he accompanied Major-General James Pope down the ]\Iississippi as far 
as the mouth of the White River on an inspection tour of the military posts m the Military 
Division of the Mississippi, doing duty as his clerk. 

After being mustered in as an officer, he proceeded with the regiment to Fort Riley, Kan., 
where he served as Adjutant and Post Adjutant; thence to Fort Kearney, Neb., and thence to 
Fort Laramie, Wyoming, where he remained about one year and a half, performing the duties of 
an Adjutant and Acting-Assistant Adjutant-General, District of the Platte. He was honorably dis- 
charged from the service in the fall of 1866, and returned to his home. 

While at Fort Laramie, in 1866, he was presented with a sword, sash and belt, and a 
series of very complimentary resolutions, by the officers of the nth Ohio Vol. Cavalry. 

Lieut. Humphreys had applied, in August, 1866, for a captaincy m one of the new 
regiments about to be organized under the "Army Bill" passed by Congress, with a view to the 
enlargement of the regular U. S. Armv. This application was favorably endorsed by Maj. 
James Van Voast, Maj. iSth U. S. A.; Brevet-Col. and A. Q. IM. G. B. Danby, U. S. A.; Maj. 
Elmer Otis, ist U. S. Cavalry, Brevet-Col. U. S. A. and Special Inspector; and forwarded with a 
letter from his Col., Henry E. Maynadier, in which he speaks of Adj. Humphreys thus: "As 
an officer, he is diligent, intelligent and active, thoroughly acquainted with the details of an Adj. 
or Adj. -Gen. He is also competent to perform these duties with his own hands, and has done 
most of the office work of his regiment and district. He was well versed in the other duties of 
an Infantry officer, and has age and experience sufficient for the position of captain. His moral 
character is above reproach, and he has uniformly conducted himself so as to win the esteem and 
friendship of his brother officers, and my own warm personal attachment," etc. These documents 
were approved and recommended by W. T. Sherman, Lieut. -Gen. Commanding. 

Mr. Humphreys has been elected police magistrate of the village of Sheffield for three 
terms of four years each; has also been commissioned notary public for the same number of terms 
and years; and was, in 1883, serving his third term in both capacities. He is a merchant, and

D. D^, Solomon,^ Solomon,'' Jonathan, T: Lieut. Samuel,- Michael') was born at Fau-field, Ct., 28 Jan., 
1809. He married (i) 3 Mch., 1841, at Louisville, Ky., Caroline Catherine (d.uL of Thomas) 
Prather, who was born 28 Sept., 1816, and died 28 Sept., 1844. He married (2) at Louisville, 
Ky., 13 (or 3d) Apr., 1847, Martha (daughter of Alexander) Pope. 

He was prepared for college at the academy in Amherst, Mass., and was graduated with 
honor at Amherst College in 1828. In 1831-32 he was Principal of the Academy in Plainfield, 
Ct. During this time he was also pursuing his theological studies, and in 1833 was graduated at 
Andover Theological Seminary. His inclinations led him to begin his ministry in the southwest, 
and during the year 1834 he labored in connection with the Presbyterian Church in JofTcrsonville, 
Ind. In 1835 he became the Pastor of the Second Presbyterian Church in Louisville, K}-. For 
eighteen years he gave himself to the interests of this church, and his influence was felt not only 
in its rapid and iK-rmanent growth, but also, in a marked degree, throughout the city in wliich 
he lived, and in liic denomination to \vhii.h he belonged. So early as 1S52 he was elected 

Moderator of the General Assembly of the then Old School Presbyterian Church, and his sermon, 
called "Our Theology,"' preached at that time, is still circulated by the Presbyterian Board of 
Publication. During this year he received the degree of Doctor of Divinity from Hanover College, 
Ind. In 1853 he was appointed by the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church, Professor 
in Princeton Theological Seminary. This he declined, but soon after accepted the Professorship 
of Church History in the Theological Seminary in Danville, Ky. It was during the later years of 
his residence in Danville, 1861-66, that the exigences occasioned by bitter and disastrous civil strife 
called into prominence many of his distinguishing characteristics. Among these Vere his unwaver- 
ing loyalty to the National Government, together with a magnanimity and conciliation of spirit, 
which were potent influences in hastening the return of concord and amit}-, both in society and 
in the church. In 1866, in response to an urgent appeal, he returned to Louisville and gathered 
together a remnant of his old church, which he had left in so prosperous a condition, but which 
had been rent and nearly destroyed by the differences engendered by the war. This new organi- 
zation was called the College Street Church, and under his ministry became one of the largest 
and most influential churches in the city. He continued his labors as pastor and preacher until 
1880, when he retired from the active duties of the ministry. Since that time he has been 
engaged in literary and theological pursuits, and still resides (1885) among the people to whom 
he has devoted so mnch of his life. In 1S71 his Alma Mater, Amherst College, conferred upon 
him the degree of L.L. D. 

It will be noticed that the positions which Dr. Humphrey has occupied during these years 
have demanded rare qualities and gifts. With these he was peculiarly endowed. His preaching, 
so distinctive as a simple and earnest presentation of the Gospel, enhanced in attractiveness by 
convincing argument and impassioned eloquence, has made him distinguished as an ambassador 
of Christ. None who have enjoyed the privilege of listening to him could doubt that his com- 
mission was received from the Master's hand, and that his eloquence was inspired by the Holy 
Spirit. Thus the effect of his preaching has always been not only to move and convince his 
hearers, but to arouse them to high enthusiasm for the truth, asserted as with the power of God. 
As a theological teacher, his knowledge of Sacred History and his unique methods of imparting 
truth' not only stimulated the imagination of his pupils, but gave them the philosophy of the 
subject and stores of definite information. Dr. Humphrey's public life covered a period in the 
Presbyterian Church in which great questions of polity and theology were considered; and his 
power in the discussion of vital subjects, together with the clear and calm judgment he brought 
to bear upon them, impressed itself with controlling influence upon the great Assemblies of the 
Church. His gifts as a leader among men could not fail to be recognized, as with commanding 
presence and persuasive eloquence he thrilled and convinced his hearers. His power over these 
Assemblies was all the greater because always modestly and courteously exercised in the spirit of 
love. In advocating measures which seemed to him of great importance, all felt that his fervor 
was inspired by the strength and courage of his convictions rather than by any personal considera- 
tions. He has always been a man greatly beloved by his ministerial brethren, and in all the 
relations of life. While Dr. Humphrey was loyally devoted to the interests of the Presbyterian 
organization of his early association, designated as "Old School," so long as it remained a 
separate organization, he has been no less zealous in laboring for the unity of the whole Presby- 
terian Church throughout the land, and was foremost in promoting it in special crises of its 
history. His theology has always been conservative, and with unwavering belief in the truths of 
God's revealed world, he has, throughout the whole course of his ministry, "earnestly contended 
for the faith which was, once for all, delivered to the saints." 

In considering the laws of heredity, it is interesting to observe with what striking similarity 
the qualities and traits that distinguished Dr. Ileman Humphrey appear in this his eldest son.

4201. Hon. James' Humphrey, [2731! (Rn'- Heman, D. D.,'^ Solomon,'> Solflmon.* 
Jonalhan,^ Lieu/. Samuel,'' ]\fichacl' ) was born at Fairfield, Conn., 9 Oct., 1811. He graduated 
at Amherst College, of which his father was president, in 1831; was Professor of Oratory and 
Rhetoric in his Alma Mater, in 1833. He studied law at the Yale Law School, at New Haven. 
Shortly after his admission to the bar, he married at Norfolk, Ct., 9 Oct., 1836, Urania Battell, 
of Norfolk, Ct., daughter of Hon. Joseph and Sarah (Robbins) Battell, of Norfolk, Conn., belong- 
ing to an old and honored Connecticut family. In 1849 she was received into the Church of the 
Pilgrims, Brooklyn, R. S. Storrs, D. D., pastor. He removed the same year to Louisville, Ky., 
where he practiced until 1838. In that year he came to Brooklyn, where he established his 
residence, commencing the practice of his profession in the city of New York, in the office of 
Seth B. Staples, Esq. H6re he soon acquired a large and eminently respectable clientage, being 
peculiarly successful as a commercial lawyer, and enjoying the confidence of some of the most 
extensive and best known mercantile houses in New York, and in the country. In Brooklyn, an 
oration, which he delivered shortly after his arrival there, first directed public attention to him; 
and he soon developed an active interest in local politics, apparently actuated by no special 
ambition, but by a genuine love of and interest in public afl["airs, natural to him, and which he 
always insisted should be felt by every good citizen. He represented the First Ward (in which he 
resided) in the Board of Aldermen in the years 1844, '45 and '46, and, in 1850-51, held the 
position of City Counsellor, provmg himself always a vigorous and efi"ective worker. He went 
over, with the majority of the Free-Soil Whigs, to Republicanism, in 1856, and in 1858 was 
elected to represent the Second Congressional District in the Thirty-Si.\th Congress. He had at 
this time been obliged, by declining health, to abandon the pursuit of his profession, but having 
recovered somewhat during the recess, took his seat in Congress and served one term. During 
the exciting scenes which preceded the outbreak of the Civil Rebellion, Mr. Humphrey was firm, 
calm, temperate and uncompromising, and his action as a member of the lamous Committee of 
Thirty-three, as well as the few words which he spoke when fit occasion offered, betokenetl the 
spirit of true patriotism and devotion to the National Government. In i860 and 1S62 he was 
again the candidate of his party for Congress (the latter time as representative of the Third District),

but was defeated by the late Hon. Moses F. Odell, whose personal popularity was aided by 
the fact that many Republicans voted for him to help hold the Democratic party to the lo3'alty 
which he represented. This defeat was, however, somewhat compensated by a lucrative and 
responsible position as keeper of the .public stores, and by the opportunity which he enjoyed of a 
European trip, in the interest of his impaired health. In 1863 he returned home, and in 1864 
was again elected to Congress, winning an easy victory over his Democratic opponent. During 
this last term of service, ending with his death, he affiliated with the moderate radicals of his 
party; was a strongly pronounced upholder of the Government; active and useful as a member of 
the Committee on Commerce, and as chairman of the important Committee on Naval Affairs. In 
his routine labors and attention to the varied affairs of his large district, he fought patiently 
against the progress of a disease which sapped his strength, inflicted great suffering and hampered 
his energies in every way. The quiet Christian heroism of his character shone conspicuously in 
this ten years' battle with a disease "that made every e.xertion doubly hard, that took the joys 
from almost all the ordinary pleasures of life, and that made him constantly aware of the contrast 
between what he would do if he had physical power and what he was compelled to do." But 
the unequal strife was at length ended by his death, in Brooklyn, on the i6th of June, t866, and 
Brooklyn mourned a pure, faithful and spirited representative, a high-minded and intelligent 
citizen, and a man of great and unusual private worth. All classes of his fellow-citizens, without 
regard to political lines, joined in manifestations of respect to his memory; the Bar of Brooklyn, 
the Board of Aldermen, the Kings County Union League Club, the United States District Court 
of Brooklyn, and the House of Representatives of the United States (represented by seven New 
York delegates and the door-keeper of the House), both by appropriate resolutions of respect and 
attendance at his funeral, at the Church of the Pilgrims (Rev. Dr. R. S. Storrs), on the 20th of 
June, gave fit and sincere testimony to the true nobility of James ' Humphrey's life and character. 

As a lawyer Mr. Humphrey^ was distinguished, even while a student in the law school, as 
possessing, in a high degree, the faculty of distinct statement of legal questions. In subsequent 
life his judgment was esteemed as mature, deliberate and thorough, and his reading as unusual 
in e.xtent and in its availability. In the presence of judge and jury he was calm, unimpassioned, 
clear and convincing; his manner urbane and considerate towards others, and his style as a 
speaker, graceful and attractive. "He dreiw his principles of law, and of the ethics that were to 
be applied to causes before the courts, not only from tekt-books and adjudged cases, but from 
that Higher Law to which he acknowledged his obligations, and to which he was never ashamed 
to appeal." He was a model of gentlemanly manner, and of a Christian spirit in the pursuit of 
his profession, and it was justly said of him by a client that "he never sought to press, beyond 
what was right and just, the interest of his client, to the injury of his opponent's client." 

As a politician he was remarkable for fidelity to principle, devotion to his party, and for 
the great strength of his personal attachments; and he was a rare instance of a lawyer and poli- 
tician who never mingled the asperities of professional or official contests with the social interests 
of private life. This, perhaps, was owing to the fact that, to a naturally sensitive mind, he added 
refined and scholarly tastes, well-disciplined reasoning and reflective powers, acute perception, 
a delicate appreciation of the beauty of intellectual truth and the attractions of study, as well as 
an untiring industry in its pursuits — qualities which the burdens of public life never crushed out, 
and the friction of politics never wore away. 

Says one who knew him intimately: "What one would have noticed in him first, perhaps, 
was his scholarly taste, the fineness of his mind, his natural and aflfcctionate sympathy with all 
that was beautiful in literature, with all that was exquisite in art, with all that was noble in 
eloquence and reason. The literary instinct was natural and strong in him. In college he was 
called the "Edward Everett" of his class?. He dearly loved to collect choice books; to surround 
himself with representatives of the fine arts. His library was always a blessed place to him. * * 


But at the same time that he was thus scholarly and refined, with this beautiful aptitude for 
whatever is noble in literary attainment and investigation, he was a man of the most steadfast 
attachment to principle; of great practical skill and energy, when in health, in accomplishing the 
plans which were necessary to carry his convictions into practice; a constant worker for that which 
he believed in; an earnest believer in principles that commended themselves to his judgment and 
conscience as reasonable and right. All the delicacy of his nature, all the fineness of his sensibility 
to literature and cultivation, never interfered for an instant with the steadfastness of conviction 
which he inherited from his ancestors, and which had been cultivated and unfolded in him by 
the religious influences that were thrown around him m his childhood and youth, and which he 
had cultivated in himself as a necessary element of excellence and power. Everyone must have 
been struck with the kindness of disposition which was native in him, and was the source of that 
beautiful courtesy of manner which is so rare in our society — so rare in any society — and which, 
to him, was native as the song is to the bird, as brilliancy of color is to the wing of the butterfly. 
He could not be otherwise than courteous, one might almost say, if he tried. * * It enabled 
him to overcome, to a degree, the reserve that was natural to him, and to mingle with men with 
far more of heartiness and cheerful response to their greetings than, except for such natural kind- 
ness, he would have been likely to have shown." For, despite his public life, he was modest, 
yet modesty was allied to a sincerity and frankness of thought, speech and action that, in some 
circumstances, was absolute fearlessness. 

The portrait of Chief Justice Marshall, by Rembrandt Peale, painted in Washington in 1834, 
and purchased by Hon. James Humphrey from the artist in 1847, was presented to the Long 
Island Historical Society in 1866, by Mrs. Urani-a B. Humphrey, in accordance with the expressed 
desire of her husband, who was a member of that society. [P. 383 Dawson's Hist. Magazine for

4207. Rev. John' Humphrey, [2733] (R<^- Hemaii, D. D.^, Solomon,^ Sohmon,* Jona- 
than,' Lieut. Samuel,^ Michael') was born in Fairfield, Ct, 17 Mch., 1816. He married Lucy 
Vose, dau. of William Henderson, of Thomaston, Me., 2 July, 1S45. She died in Pittsfield, Mass. 

He graduated at Amherst College in 1835; spent a year as principal of the academy at 
Prattsburgh, N. Y. ; entered the junior class of the Andover Theological Seminary in the fall of 
1836; passed the following summer at East Windsor Hill (Conn.) Theological Seminary; was, 
during the next year, a resident of his father's house and tutor in his Alma Mater; in the autumn 
of 1839 resumed his professional studies at Andover, and graduated from that institution in the 
autumn of 184 1. Upon leaving the Seminary, he went to South Berwick, Me., to take charge of 
a Church there, just left vacant by the death of its pastor, Rev. Bradford Homer, an intimate 
friend and fellow-student. After a year spent there in faithful and acceptable ministrations, he 
was called to, and, in Nov., 1842, ordained over the Winthrop Church, at Charlestown, Mass., 
a youthful but prosperous congregation, to which he soon became warmly attached. Increasing 
ill-health compelled his resignation of this charge in 1847, and after repeated alternations of pro- 
gression and retrogression, he gradually recovered sufficiently to warrant him, as he thought, in 
resuming his pastoral labors. In October, 1848, he was installed over the Presbyterian Church 
at Binghamton, N. Y., where he labored assiduously and effectually until April, 1854, when the 
alarming condition of his health compelled him to resign his ministerial duties, and to seek relief 
in a voyage to England. He had, about this time, been appointed Professor of Moral Philosophy 
in Hamilton College, to which professorship was to be attached the pastoral care of the students, 
and his active mind dwelt with fond anticipations upon the field thus ready for him when he 
should return to his native land, refreshed and strengthened by this sea voyage. He returned from 
England, however, in extreme prostration of both mind and body, and the few months that 
elapsed before his death, which occurred 2 Dec, 1854, at Pittsfield, Mass., were months of 
weakness and pain, but still of triumphant faith — triumphing over the power of death and disease. 

His character was distinguished by many points of resemblance to that of his father; and 
"the warmth of his heart, his loveliness of fancy, his playfulness of spirit, the amenity of his 
manners, and the beauty of his expression," rendered him a most agreeable companion, and 
justified the appellation by which he was known while in College as "The Apostle John." Child- 
like in disposition, and manly withal; docile and teachable, yet rarely accomplished, his life 
was lovely and useful, and his memory is sweet to those who knew him or were brought under 
his influence.

4217. Rev. Zephaniah Moore' Humphrey, d. d., [2742] (Rev. Neman, d. d.^, 

Solomon,'' Solomon, i Jonaihan,^ Lieut. Samuel,- Michael^) was born in Amherst, Mass., 30 Aug., 
1824, the year succeeding that in which his father entered upon his important duties as president 
of the college located in that town. He married 20 Apr., 1853, Harriette L. Sykes, of Westfield, N. Y. 

Dr. Humphrey graduated at Amherst College, under the presidency of his father, in 1S43, 
and then spent some two years in teaching, that being the regimen prescribed by the president 
for all his sons, and recommended for all young men. He then became a tutor in Amherst 
College, from whence he entered Andover Theological Seminary and graduated there in 1S49. 
Dr. Humphrey wisely chose what was then "the West" as his field of future labor, and in 1850 
became pastor of the church in Racine, Wis. In 1856 he was invited and became the pastor of 
a more important church in Milwaukee, where he labored till 1859, when he was called to a still 
more important pastorate in the First Presbyterian Church in Chicago, then, as now, one of the 
leading congregations of that denomination in the Northwest. Here he labored with much accept- 
ance, and with a steadily widening influence, until 1868, when he deemed it wise to seek a 
change of climate and the stimulus of new associations and labors, by accepting a call to the 
Calvary Church of Philadelphia, an influential position, which he filled most worthily until he was 
elected, in May, 1875, by the unanimous and cordial vote of the Board of Trustees, to the Pro- 
fessorship of Ecclesiastical History and Church Polity in Lane Theological Seminary, Cincinnati, 
Ohio; and in the following September he was transferred from the pastorate of the Calvary Church 
to this new position. His formal inauguration occurred October 27th, when he delivered an able 
and suggestive inaugural on "History as a Record of Thought." In 1S71 he was Moderator of 
the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church. 

"To- his work he brought, if not that complete furnishing which a life-long devotion to 
the special study of church history would have supplied, a general knowledge both of history and 
of related subjects, a practical acquaintance with life and aff"airs, a large and pure sagacity, a 
philosophic wisdom, and a high faith in the sovereign and beneficent purpose of God as regulating 
all human events, which together constituted a very rare preparation for the service to which the 
remamder of his days were to be given. With great care and conscientiousness he took up his 
particular duties, prosecuting each inquiry diligently, carefully summing up the results Ol every 
fresh investigation, increasing steadily both in the amount of his instruction and m his capacity 
to stimulate and enrich the minds committed to his training, and so justilying more and more, 
even to the end, the wisdom of his election to that somewhat difficult post of service." 

"His general mfluence over the students, as exerted in various ways, and especially as 
realized through his religious ministrations, was in a high degree effective, hallowing, elevated. 
They saw in him a man whose natural gifts the grace of God had sanctified, and in whom the 
glow of a holy purpose was always apparent — a man who was true to himself, and true always 
to Christ, and who, by the necessities of the case, was ever a bright example, deterrmg from 
evil, inspiring toward all good."* 

" Dr. Humphrey was a man who presented in a striking degree, in his character and hie. 
the uncommon combination of gentleness and force. To a character possessing great natural 

• I'loiH the funeral uddri-ss by Kcv. E, V. WonU, D. U., oi Lane Theological Seminary, dclivereJ Nov. i6, 1881. 


sweetness was added the higher charm of that wisdom which is from above — 'First pure and then 
peaceable, gentle and easy to be entreated.' 

"With few faults himself, he was always patient and charitable towards the faults of others. 

"He was a man of extraordinary acquirements, not only in the line of his own profession^ 
but in almost every department of learning, and yet was without anything like pretension oi 
pedantry, seeming, in his intercourse with his fellow men, to be seeking rather to learn than id 

"Faithful and conscientious in the discharge of every dut}', whether personal or official, he 
was always tenderly considerate of the feelings of others, never wounding even those he was 
compelled to reprove, and manifesting always a kind and ready sympathy with all who were in 
trouble or distress. 

"Clear in his convictions, pure in his life, noble and exalted in his purposes, unswerving 
in his devotion to truth, his career has been a fine example of all that is admirable in a Christian 
gentleman and faithful Minister of the Gospel. " * 

"If I were going to characterize dear Dr. Humphrey in any way, it would be to say that 
he was marked by great fineness of structure everywhere — in the physical realm, m the affectionate 
realm, and in the realm of thought and volition. He was beautifully wrought, and of fine mold 
and temper. I would say the fineness of the fibre rather than the strength of fibre characterized 
the man. He had strength, but it was willowy rather than oak like. It could bend, but it \yas 
not the bending of pliancy — not the bending of the wavering. It showed that it had root and 
anchorage; that it was great strength with beautiful pliancy, that enabled him to adopt himself to 
every condition with which he met. He had that rare adjustability of mind that Paul possessed^ 
so that he could be, as Paul was, all things to all men, if he could win anythmg. He had a 
rare sweet courtesy. His sweetness was his strength. His lips must always have gone to school 
to his heart, for they ever coined the most golden speech. It was here that he put a sentinel at 
the door, and so was always on guard. If I should say anything special about his thought-life^ 
it would be to say that it was characterized by thoroughness. He had an antipathy against slip- 
shod service. He made chips, but he always made them in his workshop. All he did in public 
was a structure in breadth and organization, complete in itself and finished — like the man. In 
his spiritual life the chief thing was consecration. He had laid all en God's altar, and without 
reservation dedicated himself to his Master's work. He was a fine spirit in a fine body I'l-'ing a 
fine life. Thus his life was rounded into a beautiful and holy completeness." j 

In his home life, and indeed everywhere, he was remarkable ior his fine vein of socia) 
liumor, which bubbled up and shone and sparkled in all his hours, and which made him the 
central joy of every social or family circle cheered by his presence. The same sweetness of 
manner, ready repartee and elevated sentiment so well known as family traits were eminent in 
him, throwing out on every side a genial mellow radiance which endeared him to all. A memorial 
of him, edited by his brother-in-law. Rev. Dr. David Torrey, is full of these genial reminiscenses. 
Not tliat Dr. Humphrey was trivial, but he had the rare faculty of seeing the bright and humorous 
side of common things, and so making them sources ot enjoyment and instruction as well. 

His death occurred at Walnut Hills, Cincinnati, Ohio, 13 Nov., 1881. 

His funeral services were held Nov. i6th, in the old Lane Seminary Chapel. Rev. Dr. E. 
D. Morris preached a sermon on the occasion. His remains were then taken to Chicago, 111., 
where they were interred in Graceland Cemetery, beside those of two of his children. The funeral 
services held in Chicago, at the home of Mr. Charles M. Henderson, were of a very interesting character. 

His widow res. (1882) Walnut HiUs, Cincinnati, Ohio, and in 1884. at Lake Forest, 111.

4368. Rev. Chester Case^ Humphrey, [3059] (^^v. Aaron Case,'' Lemuel Gordon,^ 
Samuel,^ Lieut. Samuel,^ Ensign Samuel,^ Lieut. Samuel,'' Michael' ) was born in Liberty, Delaware 
Co., Ohio, 13 July, 1S30, and went with his parents to Cedar Co., Iowa, in 1842. He w^as 
married by Rev. H. B. Elliott, at Columbus, O., 29 Sept., 1859, to Elizabeth S., dau. of Thomas 
and Ruth (Beard) Holt, of Andover, Mass. She was born at Andover Mass., 11 Apr., 1S32. 
Immediately after graduating from Iowa College, at Davenport, Iowa, in 1S57, he entered Andover 
Theological Seminary, and remained a student there for one year. During the ensuing year he 
taught in Columbus, O. Afterward pursuing his studies for two years in Chicago Theological 
Seminar}^, he thence graduated in 1861, and immediately entered upon ministerial work — first at 
Austin, Minn. — thence going, after two years, to Jones Co., Iowa, where he remained four years. 
In 1871 he removed to Nebraska, on the very frontier, where he took charge of a church at 
Camp Creek, Otoe Co., until July, 1872, thence removing to Polk Co., and organizing the first 
Congregational Churcn in that county; thence to Boone Co. in 1873. His work has been full of" 
the hardships and privations of missionary life. He entered, as a wild government claim, his 
present comfortable, prosperous and beautiful homestead, Section 18, Osceola Precinct, on which 
he settled in 1878. He had two cows and a horse, but not the money to pay the fare of his 
wife and children thence from Lincoln. To obtain a team for the necessary beginning there, he was 
compelled to himself labor one day in exchange for the labor of another horse for two days — to work 
with his horse. He resolved to do this no longer, and so purchasing a yoke and chain and cart, 
hitched in his cows, and with his horse ahead, made them do the work — "hauled all our wood 
seven miles; went to church on Sundays, and made some of my pastoral calls with this 'rig.' 
My wagon — the only one to be had — was an old circus-wagon with the sides partly broken off. 
In this purely western-frontier 'rig' some of the aristocracy of Osceola have been out to make 
calls with myself and wife. We bore also the discouragements of that terrible 'grasshopper raid' of 
1875, and came off victorious over all." One hundred of the one hundred and sixty acres com- 
prising his homestead are (1883) under cultivation, on which are set out thirty-six thousand trees, 
besides a fine young orchard, where formerly there was not a shrub. He is a nurseryman and 
farmer at Osceola, Neb. P. O. address Tipton, Cedar Co., Iowa.

Oswego, N. Y. Her first husband's name was Maxwell B. Doty. 

• John Cross, son of Nalhnniel, ol Keenc, N. H., was bom in that town in iSoo, and died 36 Sept., 1869, at llic residence of his

Josiah W. Hewitt, of Jay, who died there in August, 1S59, in his 76th year 

Mr. Humphrey's education was obtained in the pubHc schools and at the Cortland Academ}-. 
At the early age of sixteen he commenced the business of life as a merchant's clerk, in Ithaca, 
New York, in which employment he remained several years. Developing with mature years a 
preference for professional life, he left mercantile pursuits and entered upon the study of law in 
the office of Walbridge & Finch, at Ithaca, where he remained until he was admitted to the bar, 
lo July, 1854, at Delhi, N. Y. Thinking that the new western country offered a better field for 
a youthful practitioner, he selected Hudson, Wis., for a location, and settled there in January, 
1855, where he has ever since remained. He soon entered upon the tide of successful business. 
Not long after this auspicious beginning, a vacancy occurred in the office of District Attorney of 
that county, and Mr. Humphrey received an appointment to the position, holding this office 
during such vacancy. In the fall of i860 he was appointed, by the Governor, County Judge for 
St. Croix County, to fill a vacancy, and was elected to the same office at the regular election the 
ensuing spring for the full term of four years, commencing i January, 1862. In the meantime, 
having been elected State Senator in the fall of 1S61, he resigned his office of County Judge in 
Feb., 1862, having taken his seat in the Senate. This was in the height of the Civil War, and 
Senator Humphrey was found conspicuously acting with those who, with voice and vote, were 
endeavoring to maintain the Union soldiers in the field and to uphold the hands of the President. 

After the fall of Fort Donelson, a bill was introduced and passed the Assembly to repeal 
the law of 1861, which gave $3 a month to the wives of soldiers who enlisted in the infantrj'. 
The bill, on going to the Senate, immediately passed to a third reading. At this juncture. Senator 
Humphrey, although a new member, strongly objected to it, holding that such action would be an 
unjust violation of good faith, and would drive the men of Wisconsin to enlist in States holding out 
better inducements; and he enforced these views with such pointed language that the question 
resulted in increasing the amount to $5 per month, and including every arm of the service. To 
meet the payment of the large sum of money this bill would call for, the use of the school fund was 
resorted to. Objections to so using these funds were made by democrats, who claimed that the State 
might, at some future time, repudiate the debt. Senator Humphrey took the floor, and among 
other things said, "Let her repudiate"; adding that as trustee of the school fund the State would 
be compelled to make the fund good in any contingency, and that this measure would make the 
war bonds of the State good; which proved true. He also introduced an amendment to the State 
Constitution, to add, after the word "State," occurring in section seven, article eight, "and the 
United States," so that no further discredit could be brought on the bonds on the ground that 
they had been issued to defend the United States, and not the State, in time of war, the adoption 
of which would have saved the State much trouble in providing for its bonds in 1865. He like- 
wise made a speech in favor of the proposition to permit soldiers in the field to vote, which 
received high commendation at the time, both by those who heard it and by the press. 

Mr. Humphrey's speech in the U. S. House of Representatives, delivered 10 May, 1882, 
upon the Geneva Award, has been somewhat commended for the position therein taken, viz. : 
that the underwriters could not be subrogated! to %ie rights of ship-owners insured, who suffered 
loss by Confederate cruisers and abandoned lo the underwriters, and paid their losses; for the 
reason that the underwriters insured against the acts of the Confederate States, or their cruisers, 
and not against the United States, in not using due diligence in preventing Confederate cruisers 
to leave her shores and destroy our mercantile marine, a position then first taken by him; an 
ingenious argument — which has but recently been confirmed by a decision of the U. S. Court of 
Claims, that the Government is not a trustee of the fund, or money, awarded this Government by 
the Geneva Court of Arbitration. 

In 1865 Judge Humphrey was elected and served one year as Mayor of Hudson, and in 
the spring of 1866 was chosen Judge of the Eighth Judicial Circuit, lo which he was re-elected in 
1S72, and resigned in March, 1877, having served in the office from J.uuuiry. 1S67, to March, 

1 877- Although not strictly a politician, the Judge has always taken a lively and wcll-inrormed 
interest in the political affairs of the country, and has wielded a large and healthful influence in 
the republican party; consequently, when a successor to Congressman J. M. Rusk was to be 
chosen, in 1876, the republicans of the Seventh Congressional District, with notable unanimity, 
called upon Judge Humphrey to accept a nomination for member of Congress. He accepted the 
nomination, and was elected by a handsome majority. Having served with satisfaction to his 
constituents for one term, he was readily re-elected to the second, at the close of which he 
expected to return to private life; but his many friends, otherwise disposed, kept his name in the 
field, and on the assembling of the Congressional Convention, in 1880, he was nominated on the 
first ballot, notwithstanding two very strong competitors were candidates for the nomination. His 
re-election resulted by a majority larger than has ever been given to any member of Congress in 
his State. Unobstrusive and conservative in his ways of life, the purity of Judge Humphrey's 
character is justly appreciated by those who know him. The soundness of his political views has 
made him a reliable and valued member of the republican party, while his irreproachable moral 
principle and wide statesmanlike range of thought have rendered his career in the councils of the 
nation of enduring benefit to the country, reflecting honor upon his immediate constituents and 
enduring credit to his public career. 

In religious matters Mr. Humphrey is a consistent member of the Presbyterian Communion.

4519- Jeremiah Theophilus'^ Humphrey, [3228] (Akin,-* Deacon Abin,'= Deacon

Wis., II Dec, 1820. He married 21 Oct., 1848, Martha Jane d'Corza, dau. of Pierre d'Corza, 
of French birth, and his wife, Hannah Bellows, an Englishwoman. She was born in Green Co., 
Wis., 17 Sept., 1826, and died i Oct., 1S68. 

I\Ir. Humphrey went to California in 1850, with his brothers Dudley and Frederick, and 
commenced mining. In the winter of 1S50-51, he, with seven others, took up a claim in the 
head of Grain's Gulch, near Georgetown, Eldorado Co. On this claim of 400 feet, which covered 
the entire flat, they sank three shafts, near a large quartz vein, and in one of these shafts they 
got a good prospect, but could not reach the bedrock on account of water. Mr. Humphrey 
urged the necessity of tunnelling at the lower end of the shaft, but could not get his companions 
to adopt his plans, and the place was abandoned. Some years after, other miners tunneled the 
old shaft, drifted out over half a million dollars worth of ore, and sold out to one of their 
number, who ultimately took out three times as much as they had taken. This is "the nearest" 
which Mr. Humphrey has "ever been to a big strike," though he now has a claim at Forest 
Hill, of which he has "great expectations." In 1865 and '66 he was prominent in organizing a 
Miners' Protection League (as an offset to the influx of Chinese labor in California), of which he 
was elected president; and was chosen as a delegate to the Anti-Cooley League of San Francisco.

Michael Humphrey, the Emigrant, according to the Genealogy given in the previous pages (243 to 741), 
has had, in the line of (and including) his youngest son Samuel, 2,331 descendants, born by the name of Humphr,y. 
In the second generation, one son (Samuel-); in the third, four sons and four daughters,— total 8. In the J'ourih, 
twenty-six sons and seventeen daughters,— total 43. In 'Cast fifth, eighty sons and sixty-seven daughters,— total 147. 
in the sixth, 213 sons and 179 daughters,— total 392. In the seventh, 405 sons and 373 daughters,— total 778. In 
the eighth, 490 sons and 459 daughters,— total 949. In the ninth (as far as recorded), seven sons and six daughters, 
—total 13. Grand total, 1,226 sons and 1,105 daughters, bom Humphreys. 

Of these, thirty-three have represented their respective towns in the Legislature of Connecticut, or of the States 
where they lived; two were Members of U. S. Congress; three State Senators; four were County Court Judges; four 
were Judges of Probate Coiu-ts (one for twelve years); one Clerk of the Supreme Court of his State; tweuty -eight were 
Justices of the Peace (twenty, twenty-four, thirty and forty years being the longest terms of service); eight were 
selectmen (one for fourteen years); five were Town Clerks; two Mayors of Cities; six Church Elders; seventeen 
Deacons (one for fifty years); sixteen Clergymen; twelve Lawyers; twenty-six Graduates ot College (four of Yale); 
two College Presidents; six College Professors; three bore the title of D. D. ; fourteen Physicians; three Inventors; 
three Authors; one Presidential Elector; nine Musicians; one Poet; foiu- Sea-Captains. 

There were fifty-seven having military titles; among whom were one Major-General; t\vo Generals; two 
Adjutant-Generals; fifteen Colonels; three Lieut. -Colonels; six Majors; eighteen Captains; nine Lieutenants; one Ensign. 
Of these, three served in the old Colonial wars; ten in the Revolutionary war; thirteen in the War of 1812; one in 
the Mexican w-ar, and twenty-one in the war of the Civil Rebellion. 

There were also, in the hue of Samuel- Humphrey, descendants who were the children of the daughters of 
the family, and born by other names than that of Humphrey. In the fourth generation there were thiiteen sons and 
twelve daughters,— total 25. In ihe fifth, eighty-seven sons and eighty-three daughters,— total 170. In the sixth, 
240 sons and 229 doughters,— total 469. In the seventh, 401 sons and 416 daughters,— total 817; in the eighth, 688 
sons and 686 daughters, — total 1,374. In the ninth, 513 sons and 471 daughters, — total 984. In the tenth (as far 
as recorded) 109 sons and seventy-six daughters, — total 185. Grand total, 2,051 male and 1,973 female descendants 
born by other names. 

Of these descendants in the female line were recorded three State Senators; five State Representatives; one 
Judge of County Court; four Judges of Probate; one Town Clerk; four Justices of the Peace; one Church Deacon; 
thirteen Physicians; fourteen Clergymen; thfrty Graduates of College (five from Yale); four College Professors; eight 
Lawyers; two Editors; one Author; foiu- Inventors; one Artist; one Architect; five Musicians. 

Of these, also, one served in the Revolutionary war and twenty -eight in the war of the Civil Rebellion; among 
those were one General; three Colonels; one Major; thirteen Captains, and five Lieutenants. 

Adding to the 2,331 descendants of the name of Humphrey, the 4,024 descendants of female Humphreys, we 
have a total of 6,355 (recorded) descendants from Michael Humphrey, the Emigrant, in the hne of his youngest 
son Samuel.^ 

There are other descendants of Samuel ^ Humphrey (descended fi-om some of those who have intermarried 
with the descendants of Sergt. John* Humphrey, his brother), who are not included in this enumeration of SamuePs ' 
line, but in that of yohn,^ for which, see page 242". 


In concluding this line of the Humphreys' F.amily in America, the editor feels like making an apology to 
the female members of the family. While some four or six hundred of the sons have had their names and memories 
preserved, and their virtues and merits extolled, scarcely nothing has been said of the daughters — fully their equals 
in all that should commend them to the love, the reverence and the memory of all connected; and this in the face 
of the fact, that from the time " whereunto the memory of man runneth not to the contrary" (see pp. 18 and 
Chart I.), the Humphreys' women have been noted as models of feminine wit, beauty and versatility of character, 
aptitude in belle lettres, refinement and womanly qualities. From earliest youth, and all along through life, I have 
hoard and have had occasion to notice the general prevalence of these most lovable traits of character. And in a 
remarkable degree they have transmitted these aptitudes to their children, so that the issue of the daughters, as 
noted in the tables of position in life, fairly if not fully equal that of the sons in natural talent or success in life. 
The author feels like making this amende honorable, and of putting on record this testimony, as a feeble expression 
of his observation on this point, and to express his regret that the plan of the work has excluded so much on this 
lichalf, that is tiuly valuable and so well worthy of record.

(P. 199.) Marianne? (Humphreys) Pease [Fam. 49 (581), J.=], died at Buffalo, N. Y., 
14 Dec, 1883. In Mrs. Pease many rare gifts were united — a fine personal appearance, dignified, 
refined and graceful manners, a well-cultivated mind, an appreciative taste for literature, poetry, 
music and the fine arts. While these gifts embellished her life, it was in the atmosphere of her 
own home that the excellences of her character shone brightest. Her- affectionate nature, her 
amiable disposition, her cordial hospitality, blended with fine conversational powers, made a 
pleasing and lasting impression upon those who came within their influence. 

Sheldon Pease was born in Derby, New Haven County, Conn., 26 Aug., 1809. In 1S17 he left Derby and 
went to Black Rock, Erie County, N. Y., to reside with his uncle, Sheldon Thompson. While residing in Black 
Rock, in the year 1818, he witnessed the building of the steamboat Walk-in-the- Water, and was on her deck when 
she was launched into the Niagara River at Black Rock. The Walk-in-theVVater made an excursion from Black 
Rock to Point Abino, on the 14 September, 1818, and Sheldon Pease witnessed it as an attachee of the " Horn 
Breeze Brigade." After navigating Lake Erie until 1821, she encountered a severe gale and was driven ashore in 
Buffalo Bay, a complete wreck; he assisted in taking care of a portion of the cargo shipped by S. Thompson & Co., 
as it came ashore. He al.^o witnessed the launching of the steamboat Superior, the immediate successor of the Walk- 
m-liie- Water, into the Bufialo Creek, at the foot ol Main sU-eet, Buffalo, 16 Apr., 1S22. 


For a number of years subsequent to 1817, Robert Hunter and associates at Albany, managed a trans- 
portation line from Albany to Black Rock, composed of freight wagons drawn by five or six horses, trans- 
porting light and valuable goods to the latter point, and returning loaded principally with furs belonging to 
the American Fur Company, which were collected at Green Bay and Mackinac and vicinity, and brought to 
Black Rock by water. 

Sheldon Thompson contracted to excavate a portion of the channel for the Erie Canal, between Black Rock 
and Buffalo; this was the first movement of earth in the construction of the canal between those points, and the 
first day's work thereon was performed by Cui-tis Thompson and Sheldon Pease. 

In 1822 Mr. Pease left Black Rock and went to Oswego to reside, where he entered the employment of 
Alvin Bronson, who was engaged in the transportation business. While in Mr. Bronson's employ he discharged the 
canal boat Carnarvon, Captain P. F. Parsons, at Oswego, she being the first canal boat that went from Troy to 
Oswego with merchandise. WTiile in the same employ he assisted in loading the schooner Winnebago, Captain V. 
R. Bill, of Oswego, being the first vessel that passed through the Welland Canal with a cargo of merchandise, 
destined to Cleveland, Ohio. Her cargo each way did not exceed fifty tons. In the year 1832, while a member of 
the firm of Gidings, Baldwin, Pease & Co., he loaded the canal boat Cleveland, Captain W. T. Mather, at Cleve- 
land, with merchandise tor Portsmouth, Ohio, being. the first canal boat that reached the Ohio River from the lakes. 
In the year 1837, while a member of the firm of Griffith, Pease & Co., they toadod the schooner 0/tio, owned by 
Sheldon Pease, with a cargo of flour, provisions, etc., and disposed of the same at the ports of Chicago, Michigan 
City, St. Joseph and Racine, for the wants of emigrants. 

The firm of Gidings, Baldwin, Pease & Co. was dissolved at the end of the year- 1836, and was succeeded 
by the firm of Griffith, Pease & Co., who built the steamboat Cleveland, at Huron, in 1835 or :836, intended for 
carrying passengers exclusively between Cleveland and Buffalo, and one of the finest passenger steamers then afloat. 

The firm of Griffith, Pease and Co. was dissolved in 1838, and was succeeded by the firm of Pease & Allen 
in the same year. This firm did a large and successful business for many years, building propellers, sailing vessels 
and canal boats, and fiom-ing mills at Buffalo and Oswego. The firm built the propeller Emigrant at Cleveland, it 
being the third built on this continent. The firm also built the Fhcenix propeller, which burned at .Sheboygan Pier. 
The next propeller built by them was the Oneida. All of the above were built at Cleveland, in the years 1S41-42-43. 
They also built the brigs Ashland and Fashion, and the schooners Trident and Andover. The above sailing vessels 
were buiit between the years 1 841 and 1845. 

In 1843 Sheldon Pease planned and caused to be built for the propeller Oneida, then building at Cleveland, 
Ohio, the first horizontal tubular boiler used in America. Had he patented it, he could have realized millions of 
dollars from it, as it is in general use in America and Europe, and no essential improvement has been made in it 
up to the present time. 

About 1838 Professor Ericsson came to the United States and made the acquaintance of Captain Van Cleve, 
at Oswego, where he exhibited to him his submerged propeller-wheel to propel steam vessels. Captain Van Cleve 
called on Mr. Doolittle, a vessel-builder at Oswego, and induced him to buUd a vessel on his principle, which he 
did; she was named the Vandalia. The second was built at Buffalo and named the Hercules. The Emigrant was 
the third, and was built at Cleveland. The fourth was built at Buffalo, and was named the Samson. 

In 1853 Mr. Pease was appointed General Western Freight Agent of the Erie Railroad, located at Cleveland, 
and occupied that position until 1857. During the period of his agency of the railroad he contracted and built the 
following propellers at Cleveland: Olean, Elmira; and the Nl'm York at Buffalo. These propellers operated and ran 
between Cleveland and Dunkirk. In 1857, in connection with Dean Richmond, the New York Central Railroad 
and the Cleveland and Pittsbiu-gh Railroad, a line of propellers was established between Buffalo, Cleveland and 
Chicago, under the management of Mr. Pease, who was part owner of tbe propellers Galena, MenJota, Winona and 
Dakota. The propeller Idaho was built at Cleveland in 1861, by Dean Richmond, Sheldon Pease, Henry A. Rich- 
mond and J. M. Richmond. In 1860-61 Dean Richmond and Sheldon Pease purchased the following propellers: 
Fountain City, Evergreen City, Chicago and Cuyahoga. The propeller Fountain City was rebuilt at Buffalo in 1865, 
and made the finest passenger propeller running between Buffalo and Chicago. About 1842 the schooner Acorn and 
another schooner collided about two and a half miles from the piers at Cleveland, and sank in eighty-two feet of 
water; she was believed to be an entire loss. At that time Pease & Allen owned the steamboat United States, and 
with her and the aid of a vessel on each side of the wreck, the Acorn was raised and taken into harbor; the vessel 
was saved and the cargo in a damaged condition. 

In the month of February, 1870, John Allen, President of the Western Transportation Company, purchased 
of the Buffalo, Cleveland and Chicago line, the propellers Idaho, Fountain City and Chicago, of Sheldon Pease, then 
retired from the late transportation business. 

Nothing need be added to the above to indicate that Sheldon Pease has been one of the most prominent men 
in P>ufTalo, in connection with the lake marine. Duiing his long life his character has been fully established as one 
reflecting honor upon himself and his associates.

(P. 298.) Marys Humphrey [Fam. 16 (398), S.=]. Since printing the meagre account of 
Mary 5 Humphrey, lirst wife of Rev. Joseph Fairbank, given on page 298, his oldest daughter 
(by his third marriage), Mary Dian, now Mrs. A. B. Price, of No. 4 Wauchusett St., Worcester, 
Mass. (who was named conjointly after her father's first wife and her friend Diana Cook, of whom 
presently), has kindly forwarded to us an interesting old original manuscript auto-biographical 
sketch of her, relating to her religious life and experience. This was, evidently, toward the end 
of her life, after her health and vision had failed, dictated to her intimate friend and amanuensis 
Diana Cook,* of Marlborough, Mass., who, after her death, appended also to the same sketch, in 
the same hand and over her own signature, and dated at Marlborough, Mass., Aug. 7, 1812, the 
loving tribute of a graphic narative of the later events of Mrs. Fairbanks life, and a pen picture 
of her character and person. This brochure consisted of forty-nine closely written quarto pages — 
the auto-biography occupying the first twenty-eight. The first three and most of the fourth and 
fifth pages, apparently relating to her childhood, are unfortunately lost. The remaining continuous 
account proceeds from the age of fifteen years, and relates her solemn vivid spiritual convictions, 
and her particular and varied exercises of mind, under Methodist teaching and fellowship. It 
reveals a tender conscience, great consistency of faith and purpose, and a complete Christian 
consecration. She died 29 June, 1812, aged 27 years. 

Rev. Joseph Fairbank is said to have been born in Union, Ct. The name of his second 
wife, who is said to have been buried in the State of New York, is not ascertained. He married 
(3), as her third husband, about 181 5, Widow Hannah Russell, whose maiden sur-narae was 
Willber, in North Adams, Mass., and there resided a few years. In 1S29 and for several years 
afterward, he was settled on a farm in Fitch ville, Vt. He afterward removed to Springfield, Vt., 

* DiAXA Cook was bom in RLirlborough, M.iss.. 5 June, 1785, the oldest child of Ananias Cook. He was son of Rev. Nathaniel 
Cook, of Cumberland, R. I , and brother ol Nathaniel Cook, who served under John Paul Jones "on the ship Alfred, of 32 guns," and 
died in 1846, aged 99 years. Ananias Cook died in Marlborough, Mass., 15 Apr., 1852, aged 91 years. This family claims descent from 
Francis Cook, ol the Mayflower. They have been of notable character, vigor and longevity, and were allied by marriage to the Bellows, 
of R. I, of whom was the mother of President Garfield. Diana Cook was an early and devoted convert to Methodism, studied at the 
then famous Leicester Academy, and was subsequently a teacher, till her marriage to Deacon John Lyscom, ol Lynn, in 1822, whom she 
survived many years, and died at the home of her only surviving child, Caroline M., widow of George Ross, deceased, of Springfield, 
Mass., 21 Oct., 1873, aged 88 years, retaining her (acuities and habits of social and intellectual culture and enjoyment to the end. 


where his wife died in 1839. He died in Fitchville, Vt., in Feb., 1859, leaving two daughters, 
IMary Dian, as before mentioned, born in 181 7, in North Adams, Mass., and Eunice, who married 
P. B. Wolcott, and died in May, 1859, leaving a family residing at Fitchville, Vt.

b. 19 Mch., 1870. 

(P. 596.) Dudley^ Humphrey [F^m- 237 il^n), S.=] was thrice married. Frederick « 
(3229) died in 1867 or '68. 

(P. 610.) Horatio Nelson Rust, husband of Fedelia^ Humphrey [Fam. 247 (3365), S.^j, 
was son of Nelson Rust and his wife, Elizabeth Clapp. In 1841 his father removed to Collinsville, 
Conn., where he died in 1847. Horatio N. Rust reached his majority while living in Collinsville, 
his last school days being spent in Amherst Academy. After his father's death he was employed 
in the Collins Company's a.xe factory for about two years, when he took charge of the "Village 
Drug Store," which he afterwards purchased and conducted for about eight years, gaining some 
knowledge of medicine and surgery. In-door confinement not being congenial, he travelled as a 
salesman for a New York house for many years. 

His father was an early Abolitionist, and having been raised in the anti-slavery faith, young 
Rust vfas in full sympathy with all Anti-Slavery movements. He was deeply interested in the 
New England efforts which made Kansas a free State; was in full sympathy with John Brown, the 
American "JMartyr of Freedom," enjoying his confidence, aiding him .ill in iiis power, and often 

entertaining him at his house, in Connecticut, during the Kansas struggles, and he thanks God 
that he was "permitted to help those noble men who made it a free State." 

During the war JNIr. Rust endeavored to do his duty in caring for the wounded as sur- 
geon's assistant, principally at Antietam and before Petersburg. 

Later he removed to Chicago, where he conducted the Central Warehouse for nine years, 
living at Glencoe, 111., twenty miles north of Chicago. While warehousing he was interested in 
the northward movement of the ex-slaves, known as "The Exodus." At the request of Gov. St. 
John, of Kansas, he solicited, through the Press and by circulars, contributions of money and 
supplies for their relief, and was influential in organizing, Feb. 8, 1880, in Chicago, an associa- 
tion, the "Southern Refugee Relief Association," of which he was secretary and member of its 
executive committee. He received from the Eastern and Northwestern States large quantities of 
supplies, and re-shipped them in car-loads to Topeka, Kan., where they were . distributed by 
direction of Mrs. Elizabeth Comstock and Mrs. Laura Haviland — two noble women. 

Much of his leisure time, from a boy, has been speni studying American antiquities, and 
the customs of the Indian. When a boy there were few helps in such studies; later, being a 
member of the American Association for Advancement of Science, and of the Chicago Academy 
of Sciences, he has enjoyed such helps. He has visited most of the States and Territories, Canada 
and Mexico, in this interest. While in Mexico City he was elected a member of the Mexican 
Historical Societ3\ He has made large collections of pre-historic implements, opening the mounds 
and ancient graves in the Middle and Western States; has gathered both ancient and modern 
implements from the wild Tribes of Dakota, New Mexico and Arizona, including the cliff and 
cave dwellings of Arizona; has explored the Pyramids and the ancient grave and antiquities of Old 
Mexico, securing a large collection of Aztec implements and idols. 

In 18S2 he removed, with his entire family, to Pasadena, Los Angeles County, Cal., where 
he is now busy making a new home and planting an orange grove in that most beautiful country.

(P. 614.) Thomas Hastings North [Fam. 252 (3402), S.^] was born at Singapore, India, 
22 Jan., 1843. He was the son of missionary parents, of New England origin. His mother, 
Minerva (Bryan) North, died of cholera at Singapore, India, and himself, a brother and two sisters 
were sent to relatives in New York State. His father. Rev. Alfred North, returned in two or

(P. 624.) Correll L.^ Humphrey, M. D. [Fam. 272 (3534), S.=], graduated at Geneva 
Medical College, and was a surgeon in the army during the war of the Civil Rebellion. In 1866 
he was practicing his profession in East Durham, N. Y. ; has also practiced in Rockland County, 
N. Y. In 18S4 he was a dentist in New York City. Is married and (in 1884) had a son. 

(P. 683.) James" Humphrey [Fam. 396 (4202), S.^] pursued his collegiate studies at 
Amherst College; early manifested an aptitude for the pen and the press; was for several )-ears 
editor and proprietor of the Litchfield Inquirer. He died after a lingering illness, somewhat like 
that of his father. 

The following tribute to his memory was taken from the Brooklyn Daily Union, of Nov. 
loth, 1868: 

"The death of Mr James Humphrey, son of the late Hon. James Humphrey, member of 
Congress from this city, has been already announced in our columns. The funeral services were 
held at the house of his mother, in Columbia street. They were conducted by the Rev. Drs. 
Storrs and Budington, and were attended by a large number of the friends of the deceased. He 
now rests at Greenwood, by the side of the father, whom he loved and honored, and from whom 
he has not long been separated. A suflerer from the same insidious and deadly disease by which 
his father was stricken down, Mr. Humphrey had borne for years a heavy burden of infirmity 
and pain. But such was the elasticity of his spirit, that, in the intervals of comparative comfort 
and precarious health, he seemed as bright and blithe of temper as if suffering and debility had 
been to him unknown experiences. Compelled, long since, to forego the literary and editorial 
labors which he greatly enjoyed, and finally to retire from all forms of regular occupation, he 
retained, to the end, the sprightliness of mind, the wit and mirthfulness, the relish for society, the 
constant hopefulness and the cheerful amiability, which, from early life, had attracted the interest 
ol all who knew him, and had engaged to him. closely the affections of his friends. Richer and 
nobler elements than these came out, too, in his character, especially in the later months of his 
sore conflict. Thoughtfulness for others, a new depth and tenderness of affection, submissiveness 
to God's will, a heroic patience in the midst of almost unendurable pain, a tranquil trust con- 
cerning the future, in the face of death — such as these were the powers of moral life which the 
ever-increasing severity of disease brought to development, as the heat of fire brings out to the 
light invisible writings. He greatly enjoyed life on the earth, and would gladly have had it pro- 
longed, if it might be, for others' sakes as well as for his own. He was ready to die, if that 
was God's will, and not with rapture, but with penitent faith, awaiting the great awards of the 
future. After a summer full of sickness and pain, which yet could not overbear his cheerful and 
enduring fortitude, he died at Norfolk, Ct., early on the morning of November the 9th, 1868, 
surrounded by all whom he loved best. 

In the Cabinet of the Massachusetts Historical Society, at Boston, Mass., are preserved the 
epaulets worn by General Washington, at Yorktown, Ya., and presented by him to Col. David 
Humphreys [Fam. 28 (149), J.^], who was then his aide, and who was deputed to convey to 
the Continental Congress the British flags, captured on that occasion by the American army. 
The epaulets were subsequently presented to the Massachusetts Historical Society by Hon. Daniel 

(P. 527.) Judge Guy Humphreys McMastf.r [2571] spent his early life in Bath, N. Y., 
whither his parents removed when he was six months old. At the age of eighteen (1847) he was 
graduated from Hamilton College, in his native State, in class with Gen. Joseph R. Hawley and 
Charles Dudley Warner. Two years after graduation he wrote "Carmen Bellicosum," which he 
contributed to the Knickerbocker Magazine the same year. In the following year (1850) he wrote 
a history of Steuben County, of which Bath is a part. He soon engaged in the study of the law, 
and after practicing several years, was elected "(in 1863) County Judge and Surrogate, which office 
he has held ever since, except for a period of six years. 

Mr. McMaster's poetical work, besides the poem named, consists of "A Dream of Thanks- 
giving Eve," written in 1863, and contributed to the Hartford Courant; a historical piece delivered 
at the centennial celebration of the Battle of Newtown (N. Y.) m 1879; a poem read before the 
alumni of Hamilton College in 1880; "The Professor's Guest-Chamber," a midsummer-night idyl; 
and several campaign songs. He possesses fine ability as an essayist, as well as a verse-writer; 
but he rarely sets himself seriously to work in either direction. His versatility, as also the extent 
and thoroughness of his reading of ancient and current literature, distinguish him among the 
educated men of his section. A life-long acquaintance speaks of the grasp of his mind as 
' ' something appalling. " 

Although mainly occupied with the duties of his position, he has in the last thirty years, 
besides writing the poems mentioned, written many able political editorials and some graphic and 
entertaining letters of travel for the Steuben Courier, published at Bath. 

By his neighbors he is said to be more universally respected and esteemed in the com- 
munity than any other citizen, while the worthiest people of the State pay tribute to his moral 

OziaS Humphrey. ^^ have been unable to secure any definite information as to the 
parentage of this Ozias. His descendants say that he had no brothers or sisters; that he was a 
man who said but little about his early life; and that they never knew that Ozias was a peculiarly 
"family" name. Mrs. Euphrasia Baird {nee. Humphrey), of Holly, Mich., says that she thinks 
that the name of the father of Ozias Humphrey was also Ozias, for she remembers about a 
stranger from Connecticut inquiring fpr Ozias Humphrey's son, meaning her father. 

The following is a part of a history which was read at a reunion of the Humphrey family, 
at Hemlock Lake, in 1881: 

"OziAS Humphrey was born in the town of Simsbury, Conn., in the year 1789. His 
mother's maiden name was Anna Andruss. He married Parnal Douglass, one of a numerous 
family living in the town of New Hartford. She was born in that town, 3 May, 1793. Her grand- 
father Douglass was one of four brothers who came from Scotland, and perhaps was a descendant 
of old Archibald Bell-the-cat. At any rate, from one of these brothers is descended the Hon. 
Stephen A. Douglass, the great war-democrat of Illinois. 

Shortly after their marriage, Ozias and his wife removed to Otsego Co., N. Y. : thence they 
removed to Madison County. In 1817 they removed to Owasco, Cayuga County, and lived there 
five years. At this time came a desire to see their native land once more, and ihey returned to 

While living in Simsbury, Ozias Humphrey followed for a short time the vocation of tin- 
pcddler. He traveled to Boston and back on a peddling tour, .but either the business was not 
congenial to him, or else he did not possess the requisite qualities to make it a success, and soon 
the peddler-wagon knew him no more. In 1826 he served a year as keeper of the State prison, 
at Wethersfield. He was a member of the Connecticut Militia; was a musician in a regiment in 
the war of 181 2, which regiment was stationed at New London at the time of the attempted 
descent on the coast by the British llect. He had learned the trade of a cooper, and had also 


worked at the carpenter and joiner trade, but, after removing to New York, his principal business 
was farming and teaming. 

About 1S29 he is remembered to have said that wood was too scarce in Connecticut, he 
was going where there was more timber. He moved to Cortland County, N. Y. ; from there to 
the town of Owasco, Cayuga County, and again, to the town of Sennet. 

Once more the spirit of emigration took possession of the family, and this time the family 
ark rested on the sterile and snow-bound hills of Springwater, Livingston Co., N. Y. At that 
time Springwater was but little settled. On the farm where they lived only about ten acres were 
cleared, and between that place and Springwater Valley there was hardly enough cleared to make 
a good-sized farm. The deer had not given up possession of the forest, and could still be 
occasionally seen. 

It is but a few years since that the log house in which the family lived for five years, stood 
by the road on the Brewer farm. In this house was born, in 1839, Charles, the youngest, but 
not least, of the family. 

After living on this farm five years, he moved to the farm owned by Edward Totten, and 
lived there five years. In 1S47 he moved to the farm now owned by C. M. Humphrey. 

Throughout most of the pilgrimage of the family, Anna, the mother of Ozias, had made 
her home with him. She died in 1842, aged seventy-six years. In 1852, Mary, the youngest 
daughter in the family, died. In 1856, Ozias Humphrey departed this life, three years before the 
death of his wife, which occurred at Springwater, N. Y., 30 Apr., 1859. Since then the family 
have twice been called to mourn the loss of its members — in 1868, Lucy Ann, wife of Willis Clark, 
of Sparta, and in 1876, Aranda, of Allegany Co. 

There are now living thirty-eight lineal descendants (43 in 1883) of Ozias and Parnal Hum- 
phrey, and fifty-two (62 in 1883) descendants including those direcdy related by marriage. 

Of those who bear the name of Humphrey in the second generation, and on whom it 
rests to perpetuate the name of tne family, there are nine boys — two sons of Aranda, Hem an and 
Harvey; four sons of Correll, William, Edwin. Herbert and Wilson; three sons of Charles, Ray, 
Charles, Jr., and Arthur." — Communicated by C. 31. Humphrey.

(p. 100, 1. 4.) This statement that no trace exists in the registers of Lvme Regis of the 
name of Flumphrey is not quite correct, as Mrs. Minima (Anw\-1) Harmon, who has made 
subsequent extensive researches in regard to the matter, sends us the following excerpt from the 
Parish Church Registers of that town: "5 July, 1655, Thomas Wise and Susanna Humphry, of 
Lime, were published three several Lord's days, and were married by Mr. John Davy, J. P., in 
presence of Thomas Wise, William Courtney and Francis Wells. Reg." 

If this Susanna was the wife of Samuel Humphrey, it proves that she was still at Lyme 
Regis in 1655, and that Samuel must have died betw^een 1648 and the date of her second marriage; 
and, therefore, that they could not have gone to live at St. Malo, as conjectured by Col. Chester. 

"It is, however, somewhat remarkable," remarks Mrs. Harmon, "that the marriage of 
Susanna Humphrey should be the only entry of the name found from earliest date i:p to 1700." 

(Page 97, and note; pages 106, 199, et al.) Land Grants, etc., to Michael Humphrey, from 
the old "Red Book" in the Simsbury (Conn.) Town Records:

Mrs. Sarah M. Churchill, one of the assistant editors of this work, was born August 18, 1836, in East. 
hampton, Mass. Her father. Dr. Atherton Clark, was a lineal descendant, in the sixth generation, of Thonias Clarke, 
master's mate of the Mayflower. Her mother, Harriet Smith, was the daughter of Dr. Enos Smith, of Ashfield, 
Mass., who traced his ancestry to Lieut. Samuel Smith, who, with his wife and four children, came to New England 
in 1634; was one of the early settlers of Wethersfield, Ct. ; and in 1659 removed to Hadley, Mass. 

In girlhood Sarah was guileless, truthful, and of a loving, happy nature. She early became a Christian, and 
at the age of fifteen united with the Congregational Church. 

She graduated from the Classical Department of AVilliston Seminary in 1855, in a class of over forty students, 
among whom she ranked among the foremost. 

In May, 1869, she came to this city, at the invitation of the late Dr. D. P. Holton, to assist in his extensive 
genealogical researches, and remained several years in his employ. Here she developed that aptitude for, and skill 
in the prosecution of genealogical studies, which have so markedly contributed to thg perfection of the present work. 

She was married December 9th, 1S74, to Capt. William B. Churchill, then in the service of the American 
Tract Society, in this city. He died January 4th, 1883, aged fifty -four years. He was a member of the Church of 
the Strangers, and she joined the same in June, 1875, continuing in its fellowship and communion until her decease 
on the morning of May 27, 1885. 

Her dying confession of faith was m these words: "Jesus is my hope and righteousness." 

On May 29th, with Christian services and burial, she was laid to rest beside her husband and parents, in 
West Side Cemetery, at Guilford, Ct. It was the blossoming time of the lilies of the valley, and loving friends 
placed their pure, fragrant flowers in her casket and on her newly.made grave. 

The chief feature of Mrs. Churchill's character was conscientiousness. It pervaded her whole life, and her 
whole life-work. Especially in this genealogy, which occupied several of the later years of her life, was this trait 
prominently brought to the notice of those who were associated with it. Had she belonged to the Humphreys 
family, she could not have been more enthusiastic and devoted, more exact and painstaking than she was in unravel- 
ing its tangled webs. Especially noticeable was this conscientiousness in the loving care and exactness with which— 
in the last days of her life, when she saw, but with unfaltering heart, the approach of death — she "placed her 
(genealogical) house in order," arranging, docketing and annotating the whole vast amount of accumulated m.aterial, 
so that, at her death, it became not only possible, but easy, for her assocuites to carry on the work which she had 
so well commenced.
